As numerous businesses and attractions have suffered financially as a result of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, several NASCAR drivers have stepped up to bring attention and, at times, funds to assist the operations of some of these businesses.
Recently, it was announced that Ryan Newman is offering the opportunity to bid on a fishing experience with him in North Carolina with proceeds raised through an online auction to benefit the Watermen’s Museum in Yorktown, Virginia. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the museum was forced to shut down and furlough its employees. The museum depends on vital funding from tourism, school trips, and weddings.
The mission of the Watermen’s Museum is to demonstrate the role the Chesapeake Bay Watermen, from pre-colonial to modern times, have played in the shaping of our nation.
