Community, News

CEO Mike Sullivan and CFO Brian Higgins of Blue Ridge Soap Box Derby Ltd., is hosting a community event on Saturday, April, 27, 2019, at Fannin Middle School.

Higgins, guest speaker at a recent Rotary Blue Ridge weekly meeting explained, “We are working with (Fannin) Boys & Girls club to allow them to race for free by building car kits previously purchased. Kits can be purchased for $150. People can sponsor a car for a child. We are offering car kits to the general public for a fee of $200. We are also offering a Corporate Class Sponsorship for businesses. We have three of our top five sponsor slots filled. Each sponsor is in his/her own category as to not have any competition between companies. We need 2 more!”

Sullivan pointed out the Derby will be:

  • Donating 100% of all money raised after the bills are paid will go to the Fannin County School System; specifically West Fannin’s STEM program.
  • Working on getting a Special Needs group together. They will ride in tandem cars with a driver so they can experience the race.

To become a Corporate Sponsor or to donate a car kit, please contact Mike Sullivan (919-273-8315, or Brian Higgins (706-455-9829,
