The second annual Harness the Hope PEI will take place the weekend of September 19th at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.
Proceeds from the fundraising event are directed to the Canadian Cancer Society in support of all cancer programs and services in PEI. Samantha Gallant from a harness racing family, along with an amazing committee that she has assembled will be organizing the event to raise awareness and funds that will stay on the Island! Harness the Hope originally began 15 years ago with the Dustin family in London, Ontario at Western Fair Raceway and has now made its way to the east coast.
Post time is 6:00pm and fundraising initiatives include the Winning Key Contest with five grand prizes, combined value of over $5,000. Buy a key for $20 and if the key unlocks one of the boxes, that grand prize is yours! There is also a large penny auction, silent auction, apparel, accessories, baked goods and more. Twelve sponsored race presentations will take place with each winning horse and connections to receive a commemorative blanket.
RollwithitHarry Racing has also become an integral part of fundraising for this event and will continue in the second year. Stay tuned for some exciting news regarding what the team at Woodmere Farm, PEI will be doing this year.
