Reitenour Models for the 28th Annual CARA Charities Fashion Show
Megan Reitenour, First year Drive for Diversity Driver in the NASCAR Whelen All American Series attended the 28th annual CARA Charities Fashion Show and luncheon held on Thursday, May 21, 2009 at the downtown Conrad in Indianapolis, IN. This event generally has 1,000+ in attendance and is one of the premier events that surrounds the Indianapolis 500 and the 500/Festival.
Reitenour was invited by Lyn St. James to appear as one of the Women in the Winner's Circle representative drivers and was featured in the show. Other special honorees included Cody Unser, Helio Castroneves, Lyn St. James, Milka Duno, Paul Tracy, and eighth other starters for the 2009 Indianapolis 500 starting grid. This year's show partnered with Riley Hospital for Children by supporting the Riley mission of improving the health and well-being of children. CARA focuses on helping children, hospitals, scholarship funds and ministries as well as charitable foundations assisting children.
The spectacular show started with a social hour, followed by a luncheon, and concluding with a fashion show. CARA Charities has raised more than 4 million dollars to various local and national charities, since its inception more than a quarter of a century ago.
Reitenour said, "It was a pleasure to get to participate in the CARA Charities event again this year. I work with several charities through out the year and I'm honored to get the opportunity to be involved with another great charity such as CARA. I had a great time at the event and the Cody Unser reception and movie premiere. She is a truly an amazing person and really brings to light what should be important in life. She is just a great inspiration."
