Official Results of the Friday Free Fun(d)raiser – June 2nd

In this week’s edition of the Fun(d)raiser series, 5 contestants represented their various horse racing charities. I apologize for the delay in making the results of Friday’s contest official — the day job got in the way — it is safe to say that making the Friday results maybe wait until Monday during Woodbine’s racing season. Jude who was playing for Race For Education closed out the contest with lead in a rain-shortened contest. Scoring was based upon the first four races only.

  1. Indiana Grand Race 4
  2. Woodbine Race 8

The top performing player was playing for The Race For Education.

Through academic development programs, tutoring, internships, financial literacy training and scholarships, The Race For Education provides opportunities for educational success for young people with significant financial need and academic challenges. With the ultimate goal of making sure students are successful in life and become an asset to their community. The Race For Education established a partnership in 2008 with the American Association of Equine Practitioners to offer one scholarship to each of the 34 Veterinary Schools in North America. The program is funded by RFE, The AAEP Foundation and Platinum Performance and continues to be very successful. Additionally, the “Leg Up” program, a partnership with the Kentucky 4H Program got off the ground in 2013 offering a scholarship to one student at each of the over 100 chapters in Kentucky.

Each week, the Host will donate US$5 (plus advertising fees) to the charity selected by the winning entrant. Contestants aren’t obligated to donate but are encouraged to give US$5 or however much they feel comfortable contributing. Those who would like to contribute to The Race For Education can do so through this linked web page.

Additionally, charities represented in the weekly Free Friday Fun(d)raiser contest will earn points in the seasonal standings. The charities will earn 60, 20, and 10 points when their proxies finish first, second and third respectively. Plus, charities will amass an additional 1 point for each player who represented them but did not finish in the top 3. At the end of the season (June 9th), the top 5 charities in the seasonal points standings will receive 60%, 20%, 10%, 5%, and 5% of the seasonal donation pool..
