CASA Night at the Races
Court Appointed Special Advocates will have its sixth annual Night at the Races on May 6 at the Riverfront Community Center, Delaware and Esplanade streets in downtown Leavenworth.
Each guest receives a race packet that includes goodies and fun money. After dinner, which Ten Penny restaurant is catering, guests place bets with fun money on horses in six separate races, which are projected on a big screen at the event. The races are actual thoroughbred races that have been professionally videotaped and announced for entertainment purposes. At the end of the races, the guests use their "winnings" to compete for themed baskets in a live auction. Baskets are designed for young and old alike.
This year the event will also include a silent auction featuring themed baskets.
Tickets for the event are $20 each ($25 if purchased at the door) and are tax deductible. They can be purchased by contacting CASA at (913) 651-6440 or by logging onto lv1casa.ticketbud.com/nite-at-the-races.
