My wife is a Board Member for an organization called “Information Children”. In a nutshell, they are about helping children by “…providing information, guidance and support to parents and others seeking assistance with parenting and family-life challenges”.
This past weekend, they held a fundraiser out at Hastings Park Racetrack. There were a ton of items to bid on in a silent auction, they raffled off many, many bottles of wine, a nice buffet lunch was included, and for those so inclined… you could bet on the ponies (or “donkeys” as our lunch companion across the table referred to them). I had never been to the track before, so I was quite pleasantly surprised to pick the winner and 2nd place donkeys in race #3!
