This Saturday, Sept. 14, the Garden City Chamber of Commerce Charitable Foundation will hold its annual “Day at the Races” at Belmont Park.
At noon, race sponsors and guests will enjoy a buffet luncheon in the private Belmont Room. Post time is 1 p.m. with races continuing throughout the afternoon. Race sponsors will have their names on the program and there will be a televised trophy presentation, a crystal NYRA frame with commemorative photo and race name announced by the track announcer. Reservations are limited to the first 75 persons to respond. For last minute ticket purchases, at $75 per person, please call the chamber at 516-746-7724.
This special event to benefit the foundation’s missions is great fun and an opportunity to entertain friends, associates and clients. The mission of the Garden City Chamber Foundation, a 501(C)3 registered organization, is to provide annual scholarships for deserving Garden City High School students; and to assist community members in need. Since its incorporation in 2003, the Foundation has expended $18,000 in financial assistance to Garden City families facing financial hardships and $26,000 toward scholarships.
