Saturday February 25, 2017
Join us for a night of fast-paced fun at our “Night at the Races” fundraising event. Here’s how it works:
- You purchase a $25 admission ticket to the racing event, which includes food and 2 complimentary drinks (wine, beer or soft drink). Hard liquor and additional drinks will be available at our cash bar.
- Ten races will be held with 10 horses in each race. You’ll bet in $2 increments for the winning horse – just like in an actual race. Your winnings are based on payout odds which are determined immediately after each race by the betting amounts and number of winning ticket holders.
- There is NO LIMIT on the number of bets which can be placed. All horse races are win betting only (no place, no show).
- All horses leave the gate with equal opportunity to win the race. There are NO odds calculated prior to the race.
- You can also buy/sponsor up to 90 racehorses for the first 9 races for $10 per horse. This gives you personalized naming rights of your horse, which adds to the excitement. If your horse wins the race, you automatically win $40.
- Full color videos of the faux races will be projected onto a big screen in our social hall.
- Races will be called “live” by a professional on-site race-caller.
- The races are exciting and will be accompanied by encouraging cheers and “bragging rights” by the winning horse’s owner.
- At the conclusion, we’ll auction off the 10 horses for the last race. The winning horse will take ½ the pot!!
The evening will also feature both a Chinese Auction and a Silent Auction.
