from the 2:00 Club

The 2:00 Club, together with the Meadows Standardbred Owners Association (MSOA) is very pleased to announce that the 27th annual Chinese Auction for Charity will take place on Sunday, December 6, 2015 at the Hilton Garden Inn, Southpointe.

This event has raised more than $250,000 over the past 26 years for the benefit of worthy local charities as well as the Standardbred Retirement Foundation in New Jersey and New Vocations Racehorse Adoption in Ohio. All proceeds of the auction are donated to charity.

Doors will officially open at 5:00 p.m. with the drawings to begin around 7:00 p.m. The auction has grown so large over the years; it will be in the Washington Grand Ballroom at The Hilton Garden Inn, Southpointe this year.  A buffet dinner will be provided by the MSOA along with a cash bar. Prizes can be viewed and tickets can be purchased beginning at 1:00 p.m. on the day of the event; winners need not be present for the drawing.

Thanks to the many generous donors, the event raised $28,300 last year and it hopes to surpass that total this year. Make plans to join us and bring a friend. Tickets for most prizes are $1.00; the larger gifts are $2.00 or 3 for $5.00. There are a few prizes valued over $500 including cash and these tickets are $5.00 each. Don’t miss this exciting evening and your chance to win a great prize while contributing to a great cause.
