The Shift Up Now Foundation is excited to announce its inaugural in-person fundraising event, “A Night with the Shift Up Now Foundation” presented by PenFed Credit Union. The event will take place at Tom Wood Porsche on Friday, September 20, 2024.

A Night with the Shift Up Now Foundation will feature several driver Q&As, a silent auction, and light hors d’oeuvres and drinks. The “blue tie” event will be limited to 100 guests, who are asked to show up decked out in their favorite shades of blue, in support of the foundation.

The event date is scheduled in correlation with the IMSA race weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where Shift Up Now Athlete and Foundation grantee Sabré Cook will be competing in Porsche Carrera Cup. Cook will be attending the fundraising event and participating in the driver Q&A.

The goal of A Night with the Shift Up Now Foundation is to raise $50,000.

Alongside the in-person event, an online campaign is aimed at raising an additional $25,000 in donations.

Funds raised from both will go toward the 2025 Shift Up Now Foundation grants, which are used to award opportunities to racers believed to have the talent and aptitude to succeed in motorsports, giving them access to more competitive equipment, seat time for testing and practice, and resources to help grow their careers.
