MSOA raises $3,000 via ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association is pleased to make a $3,000 donation to the ALS Association, raised through the organization’s “Ice Bucket Challenge.”

Over 40 Meadows horsemen got together in the paddock prior to the races on Friday night (August 22) for a group challenge, and MSOA Executive Secretary Kim Hankins took the opportunity to issue a challenge to the members of the Pennsylvania Harness Horsemen’s Association and the United States Trotting Association.

Donations were collected from not only those that participated in the challenge, but also from horsemen that were unable to attend. In all, $3,000 was raised. “The ice bucket challenge really brought together our group for a fun event,” said MSOA President Rich Gillock. “We are pleased to be able to support this very worthy cause and we thank our horsemen and women for their generosity.”

Horsemen’s Emergency Fund benefits from MSOA, Meadows donations

The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association teamed with The Meadows Racetrack & Casino this past Friday night (August 8) for a special evening to benefit the Horsemen’s Emergency Fund.

The MSOA and Meadows Racing donated each group’s commission of all wagers on Race 7 on the card, designated as the Horsemen’s Emergency Fund Race.

Additionally, The Meadows Casino then made a separate donation to the cause.

“We are very thankful that everyone came together in support of this cause,” said MSOA President Rich Gillock. “It’s a fund that we hope to never need to use, but over the years we have had to step in to help several of our fellow horsemen. Thanks to the support of the horsemen, the track and the casino, we are able to help when needed.”

The night also featured a special match race among local legislators, who, led by PA State Senator Tim Solobay, were also on hand to show their support for the Horsemen’s Emergency Fund.
