If you’re looking for Verizon IndyCar Series drivers tonight — as the ABC Supply Wisconsin 250 gets rolling in Milwaukee — the place to be is downtown at the IndyFest Street party.

The event, which will be from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Hilton City Center, 509 W. Wisconsin Ave., offers a party atmosphere with music and Miller brand beers, as well as a VIP area called “Beer, Cheese & Charity,” where fans can rub shoulders with IndyCar drivers and the staffs that travel across the country with the racers.

2014 Indianapolis 500 winner Ryan Hunter-Reay, right, is one of the Verizon IndyCar Series drivers who visits patients of children's hospitals across the country through the Racing For Kids program. The charity is in its 25th year this year and IndyCar is celebrating with a beer and cheese party at IndyFest tonight in downtown Milwaukee. Fans are invited.

Fans who buy a $25 ticket to “Beer, Cheese & Charity” receive unlimited tastes of some of Wisconsin’s most famous beer and cheese brands as well as a chance to chat with drivers, including 2014 Indianapolis 500 winner Ryan Hunter-Reay and pole-sitter Ed Carpenter, in an outdoor living-room atmosphere.

Proceeds from the party benefit Racing for Kids on its silver anniversary, this year. The charity travels with the Verizon IndyCar Series, too, and brings drivers for visits to children’s hospitals across the country.

Fans who can’t attend the party, but are headed to the race, can bid on several VIP experiences and memorabilia at the “Beer, Cheese and Charity” online auction at this address: http://qtego.net/auc/racingforkidsmilwaukee .

    I wish I could have made it up to Wisconsin for this one, but work obligations took precedence. I think the folks at Racing for Kids are doing good work. It’s nice to see these drivers taking the time to help brighten a sick kid’s day. –Mike Woods
