SURREY — The Now's Race for Babies fundraiser will return to Fraser Downs Racetrack & Casino on Friday, Oct. 25.
The exciting night at the races raises money for Surrey Food Bank's Tiny Bundles program, which provides weekly food hampers to more than 200 pregnant women and mothers with children under the age of one. Eggs, milk, vegetables and baby formula for moms who can't nurse are just a few of the items in each hamper.
Those who attend the third annual event will be treated to dinner, live entertainment, live horse racing – a great night out! Tickets are $50 each via the Now's Margot Gauley, 604-543-5839.
Tiny Bundles started as a result of some volunteers who recognized there were a lot of families in need of baby food in the community. For the past decade-plus, the program has helped feed hungry toddlers throughout the city, eventually spreading from Surrey to food banks throughout the province.
The event starts at 5:30 p.m. and runs until the races end at Fraser Downs, located at 17755 60th Ave.
Event sponsorship opportunities are still available; call 604-543-5839.
