Masonic Village Charity Mini Grand Prix Highlights

Despite the rainy start to the day, the third Masonic Village Charity Mini Grand Prix was held on June 3, 2006. Through sponsorships and food sales, the event raised more than $35,000 to benefit the Masonic Children's Home and the Grand Master's Charity. In addition to the excitement of the race, the Masonic CHIP program was sponsored by District 60.

Special thanks to the following individuals and groups whose efforts made the event a success: Jeff Lankes, for his special vision and support of the Masonic Village Charity Mini Grand Prix; Masonic Children's Home residents and staff, including Tom McQuait, Masonic Children's Home sophomore who designed the cover of the 2006 Masonic Village Charity Mini Grand Prix program; members of the Pennsylvania DeMolay, Abraham C. Treichler Lodge No. 682 and Masonic Children's Home residents for setting up and tearing down the race track; Jeff and Beth Mohn of Oval Track Concepts for providing technical services; and Natalie Prazenica, Past Miss Job's Daughter, who sang the National Anthem.
