Press release from: Hillsides

The annual Guild “A Day at the Races” fundraiser held on Sunday, April 27 was an across-the-board success for Hillsides. Supporters of the Pasadena-headquartered charity raised more than $12,500 for the agency while enjoying a beautiful day at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, CA.
The event was organized by the Hillsides Guild, a volunteer arm of the charity that has been in existence since 1987. More than 110 fans of Hillsides and horse racing attended. Guests paid $110 per ticket that included valet parking, a racing program, and lunch with a personal television in the stadium’s Frontrunner Restaurant.
“A Day at the Races” also featured a silent auction and a raffle. No matter how well guests’ horses fared during the day, this ensured that everyone had a shot to go home a winner.
All proceeds from the event benefit the children, youth, and families of Hillsides.
The event was dedicated to the memory of two long-time supporters of “A Day at the Races,” Peggy Dienst and Denise Greenawalt.
The Hillsides Guild raises money for Hillsides and plans activities for the children who live at Hillsides.
