Sno-Run Social Hour, Dinner and Auction
Held at the Crows’ Nest in Presque Isle, Andy Santerre, as well as several other members of the racing world, will sign autographs at a social hour. The social hour will offer entertainment and a sneak peak at some of the items that will be available for bid during the auction, which follows a delicious sit-down dinner. In past charity auctions there have been many authentic autographed NASCAR items along with gas cards, gift certificates, paintings, craft items and more all donated by Aroostook County businesses and artists. There is something of value for everyone.

Over the last 6 years, the Sno-Run event has raised more than $237,000 to support victims of sexual assault to navigate the law enforcement and judicial system when seeking to charge and prosecute their offenders.
