Mrs. North Carolina International to give VIP Garage Tour for the Make-A-Wish Foundation

Through the eyes of a child, the NASCAR Garage is dream-land filled with colorful cars, revving motors and super-human drivers seen only on TV. For one special four-year-old, John, he will get his NASCAR Dreams fulfilled as part of the Make-A-Wish partnership with The NASCAR Foundation.

John and his family from the Philadelphia area will be greeted this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway by Mrs. North Carolina International 2011, Janet Bolin. Bolin, a veteran of the NASCAR Industry, will be providing the group with a VIP Tour of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Garage and introducing John to his hero, Kyle Busch.

“Many don’t realize all the efforts of our NASCAR Drivers to help others lead happier, healthier lives,” stated Bolin. “NASCAR Drivers, like Kyle Busch, realize there is life beyond the track and they thoroughly enjoy being able to help a child even if it is just shaking their hand and spending a little time with them.”

Mrs. North Carolina International 2011, Janet Bolin, has a mission to help raise awareness and donations for The NASCAR Foundation. During her reign, she is working with The NASCAR Foundation and all their charity partners to collect donations in-person at NASCAR-sanctioned race events, community appearances and through social media.
