St. Patrick’s Day may have been this past Sunday, but more than 1,000 attendees at the 25th Anniversary of the Great LOGAN Nose-On packed the Century Center donning green clothes, hats, beads, and noses.
In celebration of LOGAN’s month-long event to raise money to help children and families in Michigan dealing with disabilities, Tuesday’s luncheon was a sea of supporters wearing the organization’s green signature color.
NASCAR driver David Ragan served as keynote speaker for the event, he and his older brother Adam, who has Down syndrome, sat down with the media before the luncheon and talked about how they work as a team.
“He's been a big part of our lives, driving can have its ups and downs so it kind of puts life in perspective and having him along the way,” said David, “he's a big part of our team, our racing program and he's friends with a lot of NASCAR drivers, except the ones he wants me to beat on the weekend.”
Also in attendance were David and Adam’s parents. The whole Ragan family did not disappoint, and neither did the former mayors of South Bend who showed up in a fun video touting the new LOGAN nose-car to debut along with the NASCAR theme.
The organization’s fundraising goal for its 25th year is to raise $250,000. Anyone interesting in helping LOGAN achieve its goal and further its mission can go to www.logancenter.org to donate.
