The Ohio Harness Horsemen's Association will present a Charity Race Night at Scioto Downs on Thursday (Aug. 14) from 5:30-9:30 p.m.
One each of ten participating charities will be coupled with a horse and driver combination in a race on the evening's program via random draw and based on where the horse finishes, will be awarded prize money as follows: $5,000 for first place; $2,500 for second place; $1,200 for third place; $800 for fourth place; and $500 for those horses finishing fifth through tenth.
Throughout the evening, charity representatives will be interviewed, giving racing fans an opportunity to gain a better understanding of each philanthropic organization. Charity representatives will also have information tables set up as well and will be available to talk with fans about their organizations.
The ten charities represented for the OHHA Charity Race Night are ALS Association, Alzheimers Association, American Cancer Society, American Red Cross, Arthritis Foundation, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Children's Hunger Alliance, Parkinson's Disease Foundation, Ronald McDonald House and 4-H Youth Development Organization.
