The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association is pleased to announce its first ever College Games for Charity. The event will take place this Friday night, March 28 at The Meadows.
Students representing several area colleges will compete in five events, including a handicapping challenge, an egg and spoon race, basketball shooting contest, a corn hole game and a bowling challenge. The team with the most points will earn $500 for the charity of its choice, while second and third place will receive $250 and $100, respectively, for their charities.
The MSOA is co-sponsoring the event with The Meadows Chaplaincy Program.
In addition to the teams competing in the College Games, anyone with a state issued and college ID, showing proof of being 18 years of age or older, will receive a $2 wagering voucher and a coupon for a free hot dog, courtesy of the MSOA and The Meadows Racing.
On the track, the night will also feature the finals of four Late Closer Series, each going for more than $25,000. Owners of horses in the championship races, along with representatives from various local charities, will be hosted by the MSOA in the Triple Crown Banquet Room on the track's lower level.
As always, the Friday night races will also feature the MSOA's popular "Spin To Win" prize wheel and additional giveaways.
Meadows Racing Rewards members will have a chance to compete in a Handicapping Challenge, with a top prize of 40,000 bonus points.
Post time for Friday night's race card is 6:55PM.
