Work at MIS as a fundraiser for your organization
Is your organization looking for a unique fund-raising idea this summer? Michigan International Speedway holds the perfect opportunity for your club to raise money while spending the weekend at the races.
MIS is looking for non-profit groups willing to work in a variety of roles during the races as a fundraiser. Organizations of all sizes and ages are encouraged to apply as the track has a variety of positions to fill. Put the fun back in FUNdraiser by making it an experience to remember at MIS.
“We provide many opportunities for local clubs to earn money for their groups,” speedway President Roger Curtis said. “We couldn’t run our business without the help of these clubs; but they certainly couldn’t raise the money they need without us, either. And a weekend at MIS is much more fun than a car wash.”
In 2012 alone, Michigan International Speedway and its catering and concession partner Americrown donated or paid out more than $514,000 to local charities and service groups through cash donations and work programs.
The speedway and Americrown annually work with service groups, church groups, Kiwanis, Rotary and Lions clubs, Masons, high school sporting clubs and a host of other non-profit organizations to provide a platform for those groups to earn money for their causes and programs during the racetrack’s events.
Imagine how long it would take a high school cheerleading team to generate more than a half-million dollars. That’s a lot of bake sales, car washes and lemonade stands.
Service groups annually and frequently assist MIS in a number of ways including tram drivers, car parkers, ticket stubbers, program sellers, T-shirt folders, gate staffers, hamburger flippers and soda jerkers.
If you are interested in working in an area at Michigan International Speedway as a fundraiser, please call Tim Booth, director of Guest Services for MIS, at (517) 592-1266 for more information.
Groups will need to attend a guest services training session as customer service is very important at MIS.
