Charitable events scheduled by Earnhardt Jr.'s foundation

The Dale Jr. Foundation, which helps fund services for underprivileged youth in the Charlotte area, has scheduled two events that coincide with the NASCAR race weekend at Lowe's Motor Speedway.

Both will be at Whisky River, a downtown Charlotte bar owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr.

A charity concert on Oct. 12 will feature country music entertainer Gary Allan. NASCAR driver Kyle Petty will also be on hand. Tickets are $100.

On Oct. 13, the foundation will host a sports auction of items from several sports teams, NASCAR drivers and entertainers.

There will also be a roundtable discussion and question-and-answer session with PGA golfer Boo Weekley, NASCAR drivers Kerry Earnhardt, Brad Keselowski, Elliott Sadler and Landon Cassill, and former driver Dale Jarrett. Tickets are $108.

A combination ticket for both events is $188. Tickets and the auction list are available at
