Here’s an out-of-the-box idea for mom that’s all for an amazing cause! Circuit of the Americas is collecting donations for Central Texas Food Bank and allowing guests a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take a drive on the world-famous 3.4 mile track.

Join friends and neighbors safely from inside your vehicle as you ascend the iconic “Turn 1” hill, weave through the challenging “esses” at Turn 3 and 4, and cruise down the same back stretch as the greatest Formula 1 have done. Donations are recommended, but not required to participate.

Germania Insurance will match up to $10,000 of donations and COTA and Austin Bold FC will match Germania’s donation to $10,000. Please keep in mind that $1.00 can produce up to four meals! If you choose to donate cash or non-perishable items, “touchless” locations will be available for self drop-off in the COTA garages.

When: Sunday, May 10th

Time: noon–5:00 p.m.

In her previous life, Kristy was an uninspired realtor who was feeling a little bit bored with her day to day. So on January 1, 2010, she made a New Year’s resolution to write about one thing to do each day in her beloved city of Austin, Texas. And thus, 365 Things Austin was born.
