LONG POND, PA (May 29, 2015) – Pocono Raceway, in conjunction with The Mattioli Foundation, will host a 50/50 raffle to benefit the Children’s Hospital at Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) during the Axalta “We Paint Winners” 400 race weekend from June 5-7. Two race fans won a combined total of $40,000 as part of similar charity raffles held during both NASCAR race weekends at “The Tricky Triangle” last summer.
Individuals, over the age of 21, can participate by purchasing 50/50 tickets at various locations throughout the Raceway’s facilities or by approaching one of the roaming 50/50 raffle volunteers, who will be wearing bright yellow shirts. One lucky winner will be randomly chosen prior to the end of the Axalta “We Paint Winners” 400 on Sunday, June 7, 2015.
Proceeds from the raffle will benefit various programs of the Children’s Hospital at LVHN including pediatric-specific medical, surgical, emergency and therapeutic services.
