Darrell Gwynn Foundation


Each year the Darrell Gwynn Foundation takes part in many events across the country. Our signature fishing tournament "Hot Rods and Reels" takes place twice a year at the Homestead-Miami Speedway and Daytona International Speedway. We are also pleased to participate in all four Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auctions that take place in Scottsdale, West Palm Beach, Las Vegas and Orange County. In addition to these, our Wheelchair Donation Program events take place at many venues across the country all year long.
