Since 2006 our team has created unique events and experiences which not only bring an unparalleled experience for those who participate, but more importantly, help raise funds for the families of children battling cancer and other illnesses. This page is dedicated to some of the children that motivate us to create bigger and better events in order to help more children and families year after year. This is our motivation.
MAX "MOOSIE" WESTMORELAND
Scuderia learned about Max in 2014 thanks to his aunt Marie and after learning about his story, a fundraiser was held at the end of the year. Needless to say, the fundraiser was a tremendous success.
“Max “Moosie” Westmoreland was diagnosed with Stage 3 liver cancer (Hepatoblastoma) one week before Thanksgiving 2014. This is the rarest form of liver cancer in children with only 100 reported cases per year in the United States.”
BENNETT NESTER - BENNETT'S BEARS
Scuderia has been strongly supporting Bennett Nester since 2014 and will continue to support this great foundation for many years to come.
“As we spent the Christmas holiday in the hospital numerous gifts were brought to cheer him up. One gift in particular, a Build-a-Bear donated by two sisters that had lost a sibling to cancer years before, made us take action. We promised ourselves that if we ever were lucky enough to leave that grey hospital room with our son that we would give back to those families and children that found themselves in the hospital at Christmas, just as we had. Thus, Bennett’s Bears was born.”
Hannah and family were introduced to Scuderia by Brandy Nester, Bennett’s mom (Bennett’s Bears) and after learning of Hannah’s story, Scuderia has been focused on making sure that Hannah’s family is able to buy medical items that are not covered by the insurance, items that are critical to Hannah’s recovery.
As of today, Hannah continues to improve and grow strong with her brothers (bodyguards) by her side. Her smile glows now more than ever!
In 2012 and 2013, Scuderia through its Lamborghini Festival event raised funds and donated to Children’s Memorial Hermann Cancer Center. Aside from raising funds, Scuderia planned visits with exotic cars for children under treatment to enjoy and ride in.
There is no bigger joy than seeing children smile especially when they’re going through such a hard time and Scuderia will always be there to bring a smile to those who need it most in the most difficult times.
