Monticello – Over the years the North American Amateur Drivers Association (NAADA) has donated to worthy charities and this year will be no exception. On Veterans Day Monday November 11, the Monticello Raceway Harness Horseman’s Association (MHHA) and the North American Amateur Drivers Association (NAADA) will make a donation to the Sullivan County Veterans Food Pantry in the amount of $1,000 in the winner’s circle.
Each year NAADA makes its own substantial donations to charities like Juvenile Diabetes and the Susan B Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, just to mention a few. Monies raised for the donations come from membership and starting fees paid by the clubs participating drivers.
MHHA President Alan Schwartz, a former US Marine are urging those who plan on attending the afternoon’s race card to please bring along a non-perishable food item which will then be delivered to the veteran’s food pantry. “We have planned our own special tribute for those who served our country with honor by staging this Amateur Driving Challenge for veterans of our armed forces who are currently amateur drivers,” said Schwartz
