To complete our Pay it Forward campaign we ended with a serious boom!! We hosted the 1st Annual Appaman Gowanus Grand Prix. After purchasing a couple slot car tracks, endless hours learning how to work them, and brainstorming on a concept, we launched a full scale charity event that provided an amazing family fun day full of racing, sportsmanship, crafts, treats and more. Everyone had a blast. We’d like to thank our sponsors IZZE Sparkling Juice for providing beverages, Skinny Pop Popcorn for providing snacks, Whole Foods for providing food, Halyards Bar in Gowanus for hosting the event, and Joshua Paul for donating his time to photograph the event. We’d also like to give a shout out to all of the participants young and old for coming and to the recipient of our 100% proceeds donation to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer. We are proud to donate this money to a worthy cause and we look forward to another great day of racing in the not so distant future. Keep tabs so you can come next time around.
