Charity Quick Picks for March 31st Friday Fun(d)raiser

In a continuation of an experiment, this Friday fundraiser will have a ‘quick-pick’ robot selection made by a random number generator for each charity. The thought is that this will help spot-light each charity within the contest so that no charity is left out. Contestants will be playing against the 20 robots and all of the other contestants. This week a robot has been added to represent the Kentucky Derby Museum.

The contest menu for the next Friday Fun(d)raiser contest is as follows:

  1. Aqueduct Race 6
  2. Laurel Park Race 8
  3. Oaklawn Park Race 7
  4. Gulfstream Park Race 11
  5. Penn National Race 6

Selections for the Free Friday Fun(d)raiser can be made via this Contest Entry Form. Contestants can follow contest updates via the hashtag #CWager on Twitter.

The following are the quick pick robot selections for each charity posted at 5:00 PM EDT, Wednesday March 29th. If the random generated selections scratch, then the robots will receive the post time favorites.
