The 2:00 Club, together with the Meadows Standardbred Owners Association (MSOA), is very pleased to announce that the upcoming 29th annual Chinese Auction for Charity will take place on Sunday, Dec. 3, at the Hilton Garden Inn, Southpointe.
This event has raised more than $310,500 over the past 28 years for the benefit of worthy local charities as well as the Standardbred Retirement Foundation in New Jersey and New Vocations Racehorse Adoption in Ohio. All proceeds of the auction are donated to charity.
Doors will officially open at 5:00 p.m. with the drawings to begin around 7:00 p.m. The auction has grown so large over the years that it will be held in the Washington Grand Ballroom at The Hilton Garden Inn. A buffet dinner will be provided by the MSOA along with a cash bar. Prizes can be viewed and tickets can be purchased beginning at 1 p.m. on the day of the event; winners need not be present for the drawing.
Thanks to the many generous donors, the event raised over $30,230 last year and it hopes to surpass that total this year. Please consider donating a prize to add to the 'prize list.' Some suggestions for your gift donation are: Gift Certificates for Area Restaurants; Baskets of Cheer; Holiday Decorative Item or Apparel; Tickets to Sporting Events or Theater Shows; Horse Supplies; Items Related to Your Business; Lottery Tickets; Horse Related Jewelry or Clothing. We welcome all gifts and they are tax deductible.
Prizes can be left at the Meadows Standardbred Owners Association (MSOA) during regular business hours. Please be sure to include your name with your donation. We are requesting donations be delivered to the MSOA office as early as possible. Prizes can also be sent to Janet Campbell, Chinese Auction Chair, 9711 Downing Place, North Huntingdon, PA 15642.
