Backside Learning Center Fundraiser at Churchill Nov. 19



The Backside Learning Center (BLC), an organization dedicated to building community and enriching the lives of equine workers and families at Churchill Downs, will hold its largest annual fundraiser, Benefit for the Backside: A Day at the Races, Friday, Nov. 19 at Churchill Downs.

This is a sold-out event. However, the BLC is hosting an online, silent auction consisting of many unique horseracing and other hard to find items and experiences including a year-long membership to Louisville Thoroughbred Society, a private tour of Spendthrift Farm, AirBnB experiences, top-shelf bourbon packages and much more. In addition, The BLC will conduct a “Thurby Suite for 40” raffle drawing including food and drink (a $9,000 value.)

“We are thrilled to have our event back in person this year, and to be able to share all of the wonderful work and growth that has taken place over the last two years,” said Executive Director Sherry Stanley. “It will be emotional to be able to finally thank so many people who have allowed us to fulfill our mission of standing beside this amazing community through such a tough time.”

You can still participate in this event by joining the online auction, purchasing a raffle ticket for a Thurby Suite for 40, or donating by visiting the following website:
