Race Fever Fan Frenzy, the annual fundraiser benefiting the Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind (AIDB) Foundation, is set for Friday, May 1st, 5:00pm, at the International Motorsports Hall of Fame and, as a proud sponsor, First National Bank invites you to join in on the fun and celebrate Race Fever as it turns THIRTY. This action-packed evening featuring live and silent auctions and all-you-can-eat barbecue is guaranteed to provide you with excitement and entertainment, all while benefiting a wonderful charity.
“Race Fever is AIDB Foundation’s only special event fundraiser,” said Jessica Parker, Assistant Director of Development of the AIDB Foundation. “It’s very important to us because it’s our largest source of unrestricted funds, meaning we can use the money raised where it’s needed the most, at any of our campuses or regional centers. First National Bank of Talladega has been a sponsor of Race Fever since the beginning of the event thirty years ago. They are not only a sponsor; FNB employees attend and participate in the event as well, which truly proves their support for the AIDB Foundation. We rely on sponsors to make Race Fever a success, and we truly appreciate the sponsorship and support of First National Bank.”
The Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind (AIDB) serves as a comprehensive service and education program for more than 20,000 individuals with hearing and vision loss per year. AIDB’s commitment to serving the children and adults of Alabama with hearing and vision loss is demonstrated through three residential schools, an education and rehabilitation program for adults, a network of eight regional centers located throughout the state and an industrial manufacturing complex.

Steve Post with Motor Racing Network will be interviewing drivers on-stage, LIVE, with the opportunity for fans in the audience to ask questions. Don’t miss out on your chance to see and meet dozens of racecar drivers!
Race Fever originated in 1985 and was organized by the late Bill France, Jr., a former Chairman of NASCAR, to benefit the children and adults that AIDB served. Through continued support from AIDB, Talladega Superspeedway, NASCAR and the entire racing community, Race Fever is still going strong and is steadily growing, having raised over $4.2 million dollars and becoming the largest source of unrestricted funds for the AIDB Foundation.
