Charity supported through Long Island race

October 3, 2013 by  

Annual Alternatives for Children, a non-profit company that helps developmentally disabled children, is holdings its 17th annual Sports Car Rally this weekend. The event is a timed rally requiring drivers to race but, also to be able to follow a series of clues that will lead them along the course.

The day begins at 8:30 am with a breakfast reception for those involved. The racers will then follow the course, which begins at East Setauket on Long Island’s North Shore, and ends in East Quogue on the South Shore. There will be lunch and an awards ceremony at Dockers Waterside to close out the event. During the reception, a variety of sport and muscle cards will be display.

Alternatives for Children provides special education, along with other programs and services, for children between the ages of six weeks and five years old who have learning disabilities or delays. The company began in 1988 and now serves more than 600 children every year on Long Island.

It is likely that organizers for this event will hire printing companies to help promote it so that they are sure to sell out all of the tickets for the event. Flyers and promotional posters are a great way to advertise; even in places as far afield as Islip or Huntington.

The race takes place on Saturday, October 5. There is a $175 entrance fee for a single car with a driver and a navigator. For those who do not wish to race, numerous ways to sponsor and donate to the event are available.
