The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame will play host to the second annual “Countdown to the Triple Crown” fundraising event on Saturday, Feb. 3 and is seeking auction donations, the repository said in a release Thursday.
The winter fundraiser, scheduled exactly three months prior to the 150th Kentucky Derby, will feature dozens of silent auction items. An online version of unique items and experience packages to benefit the NMRHF will also take place.
Guests can attend the event from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. ET or bid on special packages online. The early-bird part of the program will feature beer, wine, soda, light refreshments and entertainment with admission set at $15 for museum members and $30 for non-members.
Many of the auction items will be displayed throughout the galleries during the event.

The NMRHF is asking for support from the Thoroughbred racing industry and businesses. Donations are encouraged, which could include an item, experience or gift card.
Contributing businesses will be promoted leading up to the event through the museum's social media channels and through database distribution. Additionally, the NMRHF will provide a pair of complimentary tickets. All donations are tax-deductible, and the proceeds will fund new exhibits and educational programming.
For more information about donating an item or experience, please contact Maureen Pasco at (518) 584-0400 ext. 109 or [email protected].
