HONESDALE — And they’re off! If you love horse racing, Honesdale Rotary invites you to its 2nd Night at the Races on Friday, September 29th at the Beach Lake Fire Hall.
A $15 admission fee per person entitles you to a horse plus free snacks and beer—all you can consume. Name your horse and watch it compete.
If your horse wins, you win $50. Additional horses cost $10 and bets are available throughout the night for $2 each.
“This is a super fun night,” says Andy Chapman, committee chair, “People stand up and root for their horses all night. It’s a highly-charged atmosphere of good-natured competition. Come one, come all! And support a good cause at the same time.”
The cash-only event will also include an instant bingo game and a 50/50 raffle. Attendees must be 21 to participate and an ID will be required to enter.
Proceeds support Honesdale Rotary projects locally and internationally.
Recent efforts include supporting the renovation of the Honesdale community pool, building batting cages for the Honesdale Little Baseball Association and providing art supplies for Treasure House.
Honesdale Rotary has also helped the International Rotary Foundation’s global Polio Eradication Program.
The club meets every Tuesday at noon at Cordaro’s Restaurant in Honesdale.
All are invited. For tickets to Night at the Races, call Andy 570-470-9042. Tickets also available at the door.
