MSOA Charity Night raises more than $5,000 for STAAugust 3, 2021,
Washington, PA — Thanks to the generosity of so many, the Meadows Standardbred Owners Association’s “Charity Night” raised $5,169 for the Standardbred Transition Alliance, which will help STA in its vital goal of working with organizations throughout the sport that prepare retiring racehorses for new careers and homes.
The MSOA staged the event during Adios Week, inviting participants to purchase tickets for a pair of auctions. The most unusual raffle prize came from Weaver Bruscemi LLC and the Ron Burke stable, who donated one percent of the earnings of their horses — Southwind Gendry and Lou’s Pearlman — in the final of the Delvin Miller Adios Pace for the Orchids. Southwind Gendry’s fourth place finish was worth $30,000, meaning the lucky ticket-holder, Kathleen Quinn Hodel, won $300 for her $5 ducat.
The MSOA wishes to extend special thanks to Weaver Bruscemi, Burke and all other contributors of cash, auction prizes and in-kind services, including: Nick Catalano, Keith Pippi, Kahrig Racing Stable, Lori and Ray Romanetti, The Hyatt & Parlay Lounge, Washington Chamber of Commerce, and John and Nicole Sullivan.
