Successful Day at the Races

By : Categories : Monthly Blog Comment: Comments Off on Successful Day at the Races

Gorgeous weather and a great setting made this Day at the Races one of the most successful yet for Information Children!  We are still tallying up our profits but it looks like this year will top what we raised last year.

A full house (Patio at the Hastings Race Track accommodates about 100 guests) and a Silent Auction with donated items including gardening tools, restaurant gift certificates, Hotel packages, printers, purses, holiday accommodation in Palm Springs, toys, and even a gift certificate for a stay at a dog spa, there was something for almost everyone to bid on.   The wine raffle was also popular with several dedicated volunteers working hard to sell tickets and distribute the prizes.

With horse races to watch, a buffet lunch to enjoy, beautiful weather and a great view of the mountains this event was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon and support a Information Children.

The event raised thousands of dollars for Information Children all of which will be used to support programming for children and their parents.

Thank you to everyone who supported us at the Races. We would also like to thank all of our hard-working dedicated volunteers and each and everyone of our supporters for making this day not only a memorable one, but a successful one as well.
