NASCAR Speedpark Smoky Mountains extended its hours Thursday to raise money for a good cause.
It was Safe Harbor Night. The park hosted a local celebrity go-kart race, raffle and live music.All money raised goes to the Safe Harbor Child Advocacy Center and PaARC Foundation.
April was national Child Abuse Prevention Month, something near to the organizers' hearts.
"It's rampant, and it happens more than people know. One in four girls and one in six boys will be abused by their 18th birthday. Only one in 10 will actually disclose that abuse," said April Parton with Safe Harbor Advocacy Group.
If you couldn't make it to the event but would like to help with the Safe Harbor Foundation, you can donate at http://www.safeharborcac.com/.
