On Dec. 16 The Kevin Harvick Foundation held its 6th Annual Kevin Harvick Foundation Dinner, Auction and Concert in Charlotte, N.C. The event was presented by Jimmy John’s and featured none other than Matt Stillwell performing during a private concert along with Jake Owen and Chase Rice.
The night started off with dinner and a live auction at the NASCAR Hall Of Fame, and then Matt, Jake Owen, and Chase Rice played the show at Dale Earnhardt Jr’s club, Whiskey River. All of Harvick’s sponsors were there in full force including Jimmy John’s, Anheuser Busch, Bad Boy Off Road, Ollie’s Bargain Outlets, and many more. While the night was an absolute blast, it was all done for the benefit of underprivileged kids across the country.
The Kevin Harvick Foundation sponsor college scholarships at Cal State Bakersfield (Kevin’s hometown) and The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. They also partner with Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation, helping put all purpose sports fields in inner cities across the country. They sponsored two fields in particular; Greensboro, NC and Bakersfield, CA.
They also surprised Jake Owen when Harvick announced his foundation and The Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation will collaborate to open another Youth Development Park, named in Owen’s honor, in his hometown of Vero Beach, Fla.
“This sports complex is going to literally change children’s lives and provide such a positive impact on our community of Vero Beach,” Owen said. “I’m so proud to call Kevin Harvick a friend, and forever grateful for his continued generosity towards our foundation and many others.”
