Horsing round: An afternoon of fun at the races

Enjoy a Saturday afternoon at the races and benefit a worthy cause. The Foundation for Axis Community Health invites everyone to an afternoon of Horsing Around with a catered buffet lunch, a "Best Hat" contest, drawing prizes and silent auction, and a no-host bar, in addition to the full schedule of horse races. Fair staff will conduct a wagering orientation for those unfamiliar with placing bets.

"Last year's event was such a good time for all who attended," said Foundation Board President Becky Yeffa. "In addition to enjoying the races, we awarded some wonderful auction items. This year's event promises to be all of that and more."

Foundation events are intended to help to close the budget gap at Axis Community Health as the need rises for its medical care, mental health services and substance abuse counseling.

Horsing Around takes place noon-6 p.m. July 9 at the Trackside Terrace, race track grandstand. Tickets are $50 per person and include admission to the Fair; they may be purchased at or by calling 201-6017.
