A Night at the Races is a fundraiser that uses horse race videos to raise funds for an organization. Guests who attend the event will bid on the final results of each race, shown on a large video screen. Once all bets are in, the race is won and a winner determined.

Tickets are $75 for one person or $135 for a couple. We don’t have table sponsorships for this event, but we DO have sponsorship opportunities for both the races (10 total) and the horses in the race (10 per race for nine races). The final race will be an Auction Race, and each horse will be auctioned off (approximately halfway through the evening).
