Saturday, Aug. 27 will be a shining night of harness racing to cap a successful summer meet at Hazel Park Raceway. Enhancing the evening's activities will be an elegant charity event to benefit the William Beaumont Hospital System's Center for Childhood Speech and Language Disorders.
The lighted bridge over the track entrance will be filled with sponsors eager to enjoy the final night of racing while supporting a charity to benefit local children in need -- "Trot For Tots."
The event will be emceed by Detroit's own Moose Zonjic from Moose and Da Sharks, and will feature a fine full-dinner buffet, race programs, winner's circle photos and a raffle for three grand prizes -- and additional gifts throughout the evening.
Raffle tickets are $5, each or three for $10. Top prizes include men's and women's leather jackets, an overnight stay in a deluxe spa room at Trump Towers in Chicago and a round of golf for four at Rackham Golf Course.
Two evening sponsorship levels are offered, the Title Sponsor and Champion Sponsor. Title Sponsors will enjoy advertising in Hazel Park Raceway's simulcast programs, track announcer recognition of your named race and your name in the race program, winner's circle photo, reserved seating for eight and race programs for all. The Title Level costs $1,000 for the table for eight.
The Champion Sponsor level costs $600 and sponsors will enjoy the same events as the Title Sponsor, except the table will seat four and your group will not be advertised in the simulcast programs. All other events will be offered to the Champion tables.
This event combines the thrill of live harness racing including final divisions of the Michigan Colt Stakes and the opportunity to enjoy a great evening of entertainment and fun that directly benefits the local community. To participate in this exciting event call Kristin Bongiovanni at (248) 841-3982. She will provide additional information and take reservations for table sponsorships.
