Dave Mutton Memorial Race to Benefit The Make-A-Wish Foundation

Their wish is to keep their father’s memory alive. Their hope is that the public will join them in an event that not only accomplishes that mission, but also fulfills others’ wishes.

Dylan Mutton, 12, and his brother, Maxwel, 10, have planned the Dave Mutton Memorial Race to benefit The Make-A-Wish Foundation of WNY for Saturday, June 18, at MXK Raceway, 800 Bullis Road, Elma.

Dave Mutton passed away in 2002, and the Indy-style qualifying go-kart race will benefit Make-A-Wish because the charity was Dave’s passion.

“His love of his boys, his favorite foundation, Make-A-Wish, and go-karting were the inspiration for the Dave Mutton Memorial Race,” said Jennifer Mutton Morganti, Dylan and Maxwel’s mother. “Now the boys are older and are excited about keeping their dad’s memory alive through the race.”
