Wheelin & Dealin Fundraiser Planned at Michigan International Speedway


BROOKLYN — Fans will have the opportunity to display their skills in a casino night at Michigan International Speedway on Oct. 11. The Champions Club presented by CP Federal Credit Union will be transformed for Wheelin & Dealin casino for one night to benefit MIS Cares, the chartiable nonprofit operated by the speedway.

Guests will have the opportunity to partake in a variety of activities throughout the night. There will be tables set up in the Champions Club presented by CP Federal Credit Union to play Blackjack, Texas Hold ‘em, Roulette, and Craps.

 “The Champions Club provides a unique setting to gamble high above the fastest track in NASCAR all while watching the race on numerous televisions,” said MIS President Roger Curtis. “And the best part is it all helps MIS Cares as we continue to give back to great organizations in the community.”

The doors to the Champions Club will open at 6 p.m. Oct. 11. A Mongolian BBQ style dinner will start at 6:30 p.m. Guests can select their own vegetables, spices, sauce, and meat and then watch as trained chefs from Americrown prepare your plate. Make sure to stick around to cure those late night cravings with three flavors of chicken wings at 9:30 p.m. Comedian Scott Clow from Jackson will take the stage at 10 p.m.

You can purchase your tickets at miscares.com or by calling 517-592-1109. The event is limited to 250. Cost is $90 per person or $150 per couple.

The evening will include dinner, two drink tickets, event gift, entertainment, starting chips, and more. Plus you can watch the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on more than 50 televisions.

By attending you have the opportunity to win a trip to the 2015 Daytona 500 (airfare and race tickets included), a 39-inch LED LG TV, a suite for 12 to a 2014-15 Detroit Pistons home game with a hotel room for two, and much more. Many silent auction items will be available as well.

MIS focuses on charity through the program MIS Cares. In 2013, MIS and its sister company Americrown combined to donate a total of $606,469 to local service groups and organizations through cash donations, work programs, grants and sponsorships, as well as tickets and merchandise that clubs raffle to raise money. MIS Cares awarded $76,469 in cash donations to local charities through its grant program. Another $60,000 was awarded through sponsorships and tickets those groups raffle off, also to raise money.
