Neighborhood Center to Hold a Night at the Races

The Easton Area Neighborhood Center (EANC) will hold its most important fundraiser of the year, "A Night at the Races" on Friday, June 7, from 6 to 9 p.m., at the Palmer Township Fire Company, located at 950 South 27th St. in Palmer Township.

The event will feature 12 horse races, and attendees will get fake money to bet with, which will also be good towards raffle chances on spa sessions, restaurant gift certificates, sports tickets, and gift baskets.

Dinner and free soda and beer are included in the price of tickets to the event, which is $20 per person in advance, or $25 at the door.

A number of sponsorship opportunities are also available for the event, ranging in price from $100 to $1000. Sponsors will be recognized with free tickets, "horse ownership", program ads, name on the sponsorship board, and in-person thanks and recognition at the event.

People can also "buy" a horse for $25. "Owners" of winning horses will receive $75 in real money.

Ads in the Night at the Races program are also available at the following rates: a full-page ad is $100, a half-page ad is $65, and a quarter-page ad is $35.

The EANC provides a variety of services to low- and moderate-income residents of Northampton County, including rent and utility assistance programs, a food pantry, a shelter for homeless families, a mentoring program for pregnant and parenting teens at Easton Area High School, and a program to help individuals diagnosed with psychiatric conditions manage their finances and live independently in the community.

All proceeds from the Night at the Races fundraiser will go directly to supporting these programs.  Donations are tax deductible.
