Checkered Flag Club
In 1999, the Children’s Checkered Flag Club was created to encourage racing enthusiasts and hospital supporters to make a tax-deductible gift of $1,000 or more to Seattle Children’s. Thanks to the generous Checkered Flag Club donors, in 2014 we raised more than $34,000. The Children’s Checkered Flag Club Champions (donations of $10,000 or more) raised more than $140,000. Funds from the Checkered Flag Clubs are direct donations to Seattle Children’s.
If you are interested in joining the checkered flag club more information can be found on this invitation letter: 2017 Checkered Flag Club Letter
The Pacific Northwest Historics weekend has become famous not only for its racing, but also because of its hospitality. In-kind donations of food, supplies, party equipment, as well as services such as graphic design, printing, advertising, and cellular phones have been donated to the event each year. These donations contribute to the reduction of overhead costs and allow the Guild to make a larger donation to Seattle Children’s
With more than 5,000 spectators attending our event annually, in addition to the hundreds of drivers, crew and volunteers being a vendor at the PNW Historics is an excellent way to showcase your company and your products and/or services on Vendor Row. Our vendor spaces are leased for the entire event weekend, with sizes ranging from 10′ x 10′ up to just about any imaginable size! We can provide tent set-ups or simply space only based on your needs. We offer stellar vendor service, from frequently checking in with you to complimentary tickets to our private Saturday barbeque and Sunday breakfast – Our vendors come back year after year because our vendor services are far above those of other local events. Vendor row is also prime location for marketing your business because in order to reach concession stands, beer gardens, the paddock, pace cars, and several prime vantage points to watch the racing spectators and VIPs must pass through vendor row, affording you the opportunity to introduce yourself to everyone! To reserve your vendor space please complete our Vendor Form (2015 vendor form will be sent ASAP), or submit an inquiry so our vendor chair can contact you to tell you more and answer your questions.
