Carr Cares Foundation Hosts “Pitch Flint: Young Entrepreneur Challenge 2019”

On June 14, 2019, the Carr Cares Foundation hosted the highly anticipated “Pitch Flint: Young Entrepreneur Challenge 2019” at the Ferris Wheel in downtown Flint, Michigan. In partnership with 100k ideas and the Community Foundation of Flint, the Carr Cares Foundation was able to put on its first inaugural student business pitch competition during Brandon Carr’s annual charity weekend. The competition featured six contestants between the ages of 12-15, whom competed for the opportunity to win as much as $5,000 of grant money to kickstart their business.

Each contestant had the chance to pitch their innovative idea to a panel of judges and the local business community.

Carr Cares Hosts “Chopped For a Cause” Fundraiser

 

The Carr Cares Foundation hosted their first inaugural “Chopped for a Cause” cooking competition that took place at Tre Wilcox Cooking Concepts in Plano, TX. The event, which is now scheduled to be one of their annual fundraisers, was an evening spent raising money through silent and live auctions, sponsorships, and a fun interactive cooking contest.

Four chef teams, consisting of two contestants per top sponsorship, were paired with a celebrity athlete and given a mystery basket full of an unusual combination of ingredients that were expected to be used in their entrees. The dishes that were created by the four competing teams were later evaluated by a panel of judges.
