Sip, Spectate, and Support at Cars & Coffee Austin
Cars & Coffee Austin is returning to Circuit of The Americas (COTA) with a new mission: Giving back. For the first time, The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area (BGCAA) will receive a percentage of the proceeds from the event. Proceeds will be used to provide Austin-area youth access to high-quality out-of-school enrichment, food, and programs.
The Boys & Girls Clubs strive to enable and empower all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens. For 56 years, BGCAA has served over 31,000 youths annually with almost 480,000 programming hours.
“COTA works to ensure that what we do makes an impact. I am proud that a portion of all ticket sales for the 2023 Cars & Coffee season will go to The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area. BGCAA is such an important organization offering so much through their programming that impacts our youth.” stated Courtney Young, Chief Experience Officer at Circuit of The Americas.
Adding to the thrill of the partnership is BGCAA’s state-of-the-art STEM learning center featured in the East Austin flagship campus. COTA is leading in the effort to bring more educational and career interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (S.T.E.M.) fields. The Circuit is looking forward to expanding these vital programs with BGCAA.
“At Club I get to feel proud of myself and what I’ve done.” Expressed Chalmers Club Member Alberto L.
“The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area is excited to be the nonprofit of choice for Circuit of The Americas. We pride ourselves in being the leading youth development organization in Austin, and we know we cannot serve the families in our community if it wasn’t for our external partnerships! Being a benefactor of the Boys & Girls Clubs, I understand the impact of these programs; we appreciate COTA for believing in our youth and our future!” stated Paul Turner, Individual and Corporate Gifts Manager.
There is no speed limit to COTA’s drive to give back to local youth.
