KATY (Covering Katy News) – Enjoy a great time on a go-cart race track on Thursday night from 6 to 9 p.m. and 25 percent of the attraction sales will go to Giving Tuesday Katy.

The first annual Giving Tuesday Katy will be held November 27, 2018.  #GivingTuesdayKaty is a city-wide day of giving fueled by the power of collaboration and social media. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and following the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesdayKaty kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Several Katy area businesses and restaurants are donating portions of their sales, on select days, to this event throughout the month of November.

Giving Tuesday Katy is made up of 16 local nonprofit organizations. Donations can be made to a particular nonprofit or to the Giving Tuesday Katy organization where the money will then be distributed to the member organizations.

Covering Katy News is the official media sponsor of Giving Tuesday Katy and will be alerting our readers of events like the one at Chrio Dynamics on Nov. 13, 2018. Several more events are planned.

iRACE features the only two-level indoor race track in Texas along with high tech virtual reality games, NASCAR simulators, iBLAST, bowling, arcades, and Mike’s Garage restaurant.

iRACE is located at the Katy Ranch Shopping Center behind Northern Tools. With over 37,000 square feet of racing surface, a 1⁄4 mile track with two race levels, a tunnel, and the fastest indoor electric go-karts in Texas.

Director of Operations, Michael Barron says iRACE takes entertainment to a new level.

“We visited entertainment centers all over the US, walked the aisles of entertainment conferences and asked Houston, Katy and Sugarland residents what they wanted to see in indoor entertainment venues. iRACE is exactly what they asked for,” said Barron. While iRACE is open 7 days a week to the public, Barron says its 5,000 square feet of meeting space is especially attractive for clients seeking a unique venue for team building and corporate events. iRACE’s party suites are unique in that they offer a bird’s eye view of the race track from their second-floor private viewing deck.
