The Now's Race for Babies fundraiser returns to Fraser Downs Racetrack & Casino this Friday (Oct. 25) for another night at the races.
For the price of a $50 ticket, guests can feast on a buffet dinner, snack on hors d'oeuvres and wash it all down with two beverages. The fundraiser also features live entertainment, live and silent auctions and an awesome view of the track - good fun for a great cause.
The third annual event raises money for the Surrey Food Bank's Tiny Bundles program, which provides weekly food hampers to pregnant women and mothers with children under the age of one.
The event starts at 5:30 p.m. and runs until the races end at Fraser Downs, 17755 60th Ave. For tickets and more details, call the Now's Margot Gauley at 604-543-5839 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Items available for bid in the live auction include a return trip for two to Jasper aboard VIA Rail, a Canucks game/Cactus Club package and a getaway to Galiano Inn resort and spa.
Events such as Race for Babies help raise much needed money for the Tiny Bundles hampers. For a closer look at the program, see story on page 24.
