Washington, PA --- The 2:00 Club, together with the Meadows Standardbred Owners Association, is very pleased to announce the upcoming 24th annual Chinese Auction for Charity will take place on Sunday (Dec. 16) at the DoubleTree Hotel (formerly the Holiday Inn) on Racetrack Road in Meadow Lands.
This event has raised more than $175,000 over the past 23 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 officially open at 5 p.m. with the drawings to begin around 7 p.m.
The auction has grown so large over the years that it will be in the Grande Ballroom of the hotel this year. Buffet-style food will be provided along with a cash bar. Prizes can be viewed and tickets can be purchased beginning at 1 p.m. on the day of the event; winners need not be present for the drawing.
Thanks to the many generous donors, we raised $20,510 last year and we hope to surpass that total this year. With your help, we can reach our goal. Please consider donating a prize to add to our “prize list.” Some suggestions for your gift donation are gift certificates for area restaurants; basket of cheer; holiday decorative item or apparel; tickets to sporting events or theater shows; horse supplies; items related to your business; lottery tickets; or horse related jewelry or clothing. We welcome all gifts and they are tax deductible.
Prizes can be left at the Meadows Standardbred Owners Association during regular business hours. Please be sure to include your name with your donation. Prizes can also be sent to Janet Campbell, 2:00 Club President, 9711 Downing Place, North Huntingdon, PA 15642.
Make plans to join us and bring a friend. Tickets for most prizes are $1; the larger gifts are $2 or three for $5. There are a few prizes valued over $500, including cash, and these tickets are $5 each. Click here for a complete list of prizes.
