St. Mary Medical Center Guild Plans Fundraiser at Los Alamitos Race Course
2012-08-09 · By Editor
One of the St. Mary Medical Center Guild’s annual fundraisers, a Night at the Races, will take place on August 11 at the Los Alamitos Race Course.
“Each year we try to develop some enthusiasm for the night by getting doctors and their staff, administration, directors, hospital staff, and all our friends from the Long Beach community to participate,” said Martha McNaughton, St. Mary Guild President. “Please come to the event, encourage others and possibly make some money on the horses and have a great buffet meal all for $75,” she added.
Tickets include free preferred parking, a private room facing the finish line, and betting windows to try your skill at picking the winners. At the minimum, St. Mary supporters can buy a book of raffle tickets with a chance to win $l,000, $500 or $250 in the drawing. Tickets are $2 each and 11 tickets are $20.00.
Last year the net proceeds for the hospital were over $10,000.
“We think that $20,000 is within reach with the help of our community. Please save the date to support this fun event.,” said McNaughton.
A buffet dinner, cash door prizes and a silent auction will be featured. Contact Martha McNaughton at 562-491-9230 or stop by the Gift Shop at St. Mary Medical Center for further information, tickets or details.
