4th Annual Sts. Peter and Paul
'Night at the Races' April 21
The 4th Annual Sts. Peter and Paul School "Night at the Races" will be held on Friday, April 21 in the Sts. Peter and Paul Parish Hall. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with dinner starting at 6 p.m. Race post time is 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 each and include a delicious meal. A silent and live auction will take place throughout the night with a very special "Autism Awareness" basket added this year. All funds raised from the "Autism Awareness" basket will be donated to the Autism Society.
This event will bring the excitement of horse racing to YOU through video. Actual race footage is used for each "Race." Patrons enjoy drinks and dinner, and are able to place bets on horses throughout the night. A large screen will be placed in the hall, in view of all tables. Actual race footage is then played on the screen.
"You do not need to bet on the horses to enjoy the evening," a spokesman noted. "If you would like to join us for the delicious meal, appetizers, drinks and wonderful company, please feel free not to place bets. The friendly atmosphere alone will make for a wonderful evening. There will also be split-the-pot, a basket auction, both silent and live auctions to keep you entertained, as well as fabulous door prizes that will be given away."
Betting windows will be set up on the far side of the hall for patrons to wager. There is a $2 betting minimum per race. Once you decide the horse you'd like to bet on, you go to the window for the horse's number and place your bet. You will receive a ticket indicating the horse you bet on.
After each race, the winning horse will be announced. Those holding numbers of the winning horse will go to the "cashier" to pick up their winnings. Winnings are determined by the number of wagers placed per race.
You may purchase a horse for $20 through the school office or at the event. Being the horse's owner, you will also need to give your horse a name.
Tickets may be purchased in the school office or online at https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=J6P44KWU4N4KU.
Please note, this is an age 21-and-over event, so enjoy an evening out with your spouse or friends. There is babysitting available in the Preschool building, just feet away from the hall, for the evening.
