Hillsides is Winner at Guild 'A Day at the Races' Fundraiser

African American news from Pasadena - Community - Hillsides Day at the Races

A Day at the Races co-chairs, Astrid Fishbein and Dee Fisher, greeted guests as they enjoyed a beautiful day at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia to benefit Hillsides.

Pasadena, CA - The annual Guild "A Day at the Races" fundraiser held on Sunday, April 27 was an across-the-board success for Hillsides. Supporters of the Pasadena-headquartered charity raised more than $12,500 for the agency while enjoying a beautiful day at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, CA.

The event was organized by the Hillsides Guild, a volunteer arm of the charity that has been in existence since 1987. More than 110 fans of Hillsides and horse racing attended. Guests paid $110 per ticket that included valet parking, a racing program, and lunch with a personal television in the stadium's Frontrunner Restaurant.

"A Day at the Races" also featured a silent auction and a raffle. No matter how well guests' horses fared during the day, this ensured that everyone had a shot to go home a winner.

All proceeds from the event benefit the children, youth, and families of Hillsides.

The event was dedicated to the memory of two long-time supporters of "A Day at the Races," Peggy Dienst and Denise Greenawalt.

The Hillsides Guild raises money for Hillsides and plans activities for the children who live at Hillsides. Hillsides is a premier provider dedicated to improving the well-being and overall functioning of vulnerable children, youth, and families throughout Los Angeles County.
