COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT WITH EDMONTON INT'L RACEWAY IN WETASKIWIN
Edmonton Int’l Raceway (EIR) is a major contributor to the community of Wetaskiwin, both City and County. EIR provides a safe and controlled environment for racing competitors ages 8 years and up.
Together with the Wetaskiwin Stock Car Club EIR offers Charitable Organizations the opportunity to host their 50/50 fundraising at the Raceway. Each race night a different organization is invited to sell 50/50 tickets at the raceway so that they can raise funds for their organization.
EIR is proud to host another spectacular Canada Day Event in 2023. Everyone is welcome to attend, free of charge to take in all the fun and excitement including Stock Car Racing, DJ with Dancing, Car Show, Games for the Kids and Face Painters followed by a HUGE Fireworks Show at 11 pm!
EIR donates over $30,000 yearly in NASCAR Stock Car Test Drive Experiences to many various Charitable Fundraisers & Silent Auction, these Experience Packages do very well in raising funds for local charitable campaigns.
EIR continues to partner with many local community functions by providing them the opportunity to set up information booths, sell raffle tickets and other fundraising events at the Raceway for the entire Race Season.
If anyone is interested in hosting any type of fundraising event at EIR, please reach out to Loretta Thiering Here

On 18 November 2013, the Taylor family lost their beloved 17 year old daughter Emily lost her battle with depression and ended her life. We honour her memory by helping other adolescents who struggle with mental unwellness. Since 2016, Emily's Memorial Motorcycle Ride raised over $110,000 for CASA House recreational programs, the Equine Therapy program and other unfunded and needed CASA initiatives. Emily's Memorial Horse Show which we started in 2019, has raised over $40,000 and we are excited to keep building the Horse Show with our 2023 Horse Show to be held 10 - 13 August 2023 at Hay Lakes Agriplex. All proceeds raised go to CASA Mental Health towards recreational programs for the youth in treatment at CASA House in Sherwood Park.
