Homestead, Fl; (February 2, 1999) Tuesday's proceedings also included the announcement that the philanthropic foundation created last year by three-time PPG Cup winner Bobby Rahal to commemorate his final racing season will donate more than $400,000 to children's organizations and charitable causes in race communities around the country during the coming FedEx Championship Series season. The Bobby Rahal Foundation collected $400,640 through special events, corporate gifts, private donations and unique sponsorships. The money will be reinvested in youth and family programs and health research efforts nationwide. "I'm truly flattered by the outpouring of support this program generated and thrilled at the opportunity to help so many valuable organizations," Rahal said. "Racing has enriched my life. Now, through the good work of the foundation, it's going to enrich the lives of others."
