The Belmont Child Care Association, Inc. will host its online fundraiser–the week-long “Racing for the Children” virtual party–beginning Monday, Aug. 3 at 12 p.m. through Sunday, Aug. 9. The virtual format, which serves as a temporary substitute for the BCCA's annual dinner, will be hosted online at www.BelmontChildCare.org. Through the week, the website will host a series of features, including video messages from well-known racing personalities, a premium auction and recipes from Saratoga Springs restaurants. All proceeds will support the BCCA's mission to care for the children and families of the backstretch, including the operation of the Anna House at Belmont Park as well as the forthcoming Saratoga Child Care Center, which is set to debut in 2021.
“We invite you to join us and think big for BCCA,” said BCCA President Libby Imperio. “A gift of any size makes a difference in a child's life and when we come together, we can make a great impact.”
The event's auction will include: a Clubhouse box for the 2021 GI Runhappy Travers at Saratoga Race Course; a Clubhouse box for the 2021 GI Belmont S. at Belmont Park; a customized jockey statue and quarter mile post; equine care from Rood and Riddle; and services from Brook Ledge Horse Transportation.
