Many years ago, two sisters (Shelby and Samantha Keating) volunteered at Camp Gonnawannagoagin’. They were outstanding volunteers who loved the work and truly connected to the campers. They told their neighbor, Joe Correa, about their wonderful experiences and F.A.C.T.’s good works. Joe reached out to his old friend Rex Gardner who loves vintage cars, going fast, and his son who has autism. Rex is now F.A.C.T.’s good friend as well, even though we have never met.
Rex founded the Vintage Car Rally Association, a non-profit organization based in his home state of Oklahoma. Their mission has two important components. They provide classic car enthusiasts the opportunity to compete safely and thereby keeping the sport and love of great automobiles flourishing. Their second goal is to support families with autism by donating the proceeds from their events to autism schools and charities.
Since 2012, the VCRA has sponsored bike camp, the purchase of a 15 passenger van, entire seasons of sports programs and family socials, and the purchase of much needed office and camp equipment. We could not be more grateful for their hard work and loyal support. Please visit the VCRA website to see more about their work and exciting events.
