Youngstown State Athletics is hosting its third annual Night at the Races event in June to raise money for women’s teams and female student-athlete scholarships.

The fundraiser will be held on Friday, June 28, 2019, at A La Cart Catering on Lisbon Street in Canfield. Dinner will begin at 6 p.m., and the first of 10 races during the evening will begin at 7. The final race will begin at approximately 9 p.m.

There are several ways to support YSU female student-athletes through the event. The cost to sponsor a horse is $40, which gives a 10 percent chance to win $80. Money from the horse sponsorship goes directly to a designated sport program. The cost to attend the dinner and fun-filled event is $25, and it will cost $20 to bet $2 for all 10 races. Attendance is not required for the sponsoring of horses.

There will also be a 50-50 raffle and a gift basket auction during the evening.

Emperor Penguin sponsorship packages are also available for the event. The sponsorship includes a name or business logo on a banner that will be displayed at the event as well as mentioning in the evening’s program. The package also includes naming rights to a horse as well as two dinner tickets.
