Mike and Angie Skinner to Host Two-Day Cessna Skinner Round-Up Benefitting the Council on Aging of Volusia County on October 28-29, 2015
The Cessna Skinner Round-Up is back in Daytona Beach, Florida! After taking a brief hiatus the two-day charity event returns to Volusia County on October 28-29, 2015 to benefit the Council on Aging of Volusia County. This year's event will kick off with a party in the infield at Daytona International Speedway with the Hoedown Bash on Wednesday, October 28 at 7 p.m. ET. Registration for the Cessna Skinner Round-Up Golf Tournament presented by Halifax Health at Spruce Creek Country Club will open on Thursday, October 29 at 10 a.m. ET.
"After moving to North Carolina for a few years, Angie and I really missed our neighbors in Volusia County and the Daytona Beach community," Mike Skinner said. "We knew it was time for us to come back home, and we were excited to reintegrate ourselves in the community once we arrived through events like the Skinner Round-Up. We're so excited to bring this event back to Daytona Beach. We have some great partners involved in this year's event-Cessna, Hard Rock Seminole, Halifax Health, Suntrust Bank, Oral-B, Toyota, and so many others. I can't wait to see the impact we're able to make within Volusia County."
Countless sponsors have joined the effort to make the Cessna Skinner Round-Up possible in 2015. Debuting a new relationship for the Skinner Round-Up, the two-day event will be presented by Cessna. One of the headline events at Wednesday's Hoedown Bash will be the Hard Rock Seminole concert by Stacy Mitchhart on the Management Resource Systems Stage. Meanwhile, Thursday's golf tournament at Spruce Creek Country Club will be presented by Halifax Health. Additional partners supporting the Skinner Round-Up include American Auto, Bad Boy Buggies, Devine Family Foundation, E-Z-GO, Fanatics, Froggy's Saloon, Germain Racing, Molto Bella Boutique, National Wild Turkey Federation, Oral-B, Richard Childress Racing, Skip's Boots, Suntrust Bank, Toyota, Volusia Top Gun and Yuengling.
Since the inception of the Cessna Skinner Round-Up, the event has always benefitted non-profit organizations in Volusia County, keeping all funds raised within Daytona Beach and surrounding communities. In 2015, the Cessna Skinner Round-Up will benefit the Council on Aging of Volusia County. In partnership with the community, the Council on Aging promotes healthy, independent living through caring and compassionate services. The Council on Aging of Volusia County serves thousands of clients every year through meals programs, non-medical health services and senior activities.
"After participating in countless charity golf events, Mike and I started the Skinner Round-Up nearly 10 years ago as a way to benefit our local community," Angie Skinner said. "A friend of ours works with the Concerned Citizens for Animal Welfare here in Daytona Beach, and needed help to feed the animals. We realized that if we started a charity event to focus on organizations based in and around Daytona Beach, that we would actually be able to make an impact on our local community. All of the money that we've ever raised has stayed within Volusia County, which is really important to us. This year, our event will benefit the Council on Aging of Volusia County, an organization that I became involved with after we moved back to Florida. Taking care of the elderly isn't glamorous, it's a job that's often overlooked, which is just one of the reasons why we wanted to partner with them for the 2015 Cessna Skinner Round-Up."
The Cessna Skinner Round-Up will take place rain or shine. Tickets for the Skinner Round-Up Hoedown Bash will be sold at the gate beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, October 28. Attendees should enter through the Williamson Boulevard entrance of Daytona International Speedway. Tickets for adults are just $10, while children ages 12 and under will be admitted free of charge. Golfers are still able to register for the Skinner Round-Up Golf Tournament presented by Halifax Health. The tournament costs $150 per player, and will take place at the Spruce Creek Country Club in Port Orange, Fla. on Thursday, October 29.
