The Joey Logano Foundation Hosted “Heroes Night Out” at The Charlotte Motor Speedway for Novant and Atrium Frontline Workers
Joey Logano, driver of the #22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Mustang for Team Penske in the NASCAR Cup Series, founded the Joey Logano Foundation to offer second chances to children and young adults during times of crisis and works to inspire others to live a life of generosity. Since JLF’s inception in 2013, over $4,000,000 has been invested to support non-profits across the country. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Joey Logano Foundation provided grants six (6) organizations within the state of North Carolina, impacting 1,800 North Carolina residents.
On March 31st, Joey and his wife Brittany established a $1,000,000 COVID-19 Response & Recovery Fund with Elevation Outreach. Through the Joey Logano Foundation and Elevation Outreach, this Response & Recovery Fund was used to help charitable organizations in ﬁnancial need, as well as to set up three Convoy of Hope events in three different states to distribute essential supplies and food to over 35,000 people. In addition to the $1,000,000 Response & Recovery Fund, Joey and his wife felt a huge calling to give back to those closest to us in our local community which is how the event “Heroes Night Out” came to life. As a way to show their appreciation to those who have been on the frontlines during the pandemic, 700 Charlotte-area essential workers from Novant and Atrium – as well as their families – were invited to attend a live concert featuring country music artists, Mitch Rossell and Lee Brice in addition to a drive-in movie experience at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on Saturday, August 22nd. This event provided a safe, family-friendly night out for those who have given so much to our community. From the comfort of their car, attendees enjoyed a delicious meal provided by SONIC Drive-In while listening to live musical performances followed by the presentation of Dreamworks Animation film, Turbo, on one of the largest high-definition screens in the country and fireworks to cap the evening off.
