United Way “Night at the Races” set for Friday


The United Way Night at the Races is approaching. On Friday, guests can enjoy a night at Wheeling Island Casino and Racetrack, while helping out the organization. 

The event starts at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, and those in attendance can enjoy a great buffet dinner and bet on greyhound races. 

Officials with the United Way said it’s a great way to get out after being cooped up all winter.  “This is really a fun event that people can come out, have a nice dinner, meet their friends, do some greyhound racing fun, and just enjoy the evening and help the United Way at the same time,” said Judy Tarowsky, the Marketing Director for the organization.

Executive Director George Smoulder added, “It’s a tremendous way in which resources are raised for our 29 United Way agencies that are responding every day to the individuals and families right here in the Upper Ohio Valley.”

A number of great prizes will be available during the raffle, including a Romantic Hampton Inn-Wheeling Getaway, which includes a one-night stay for two at the award winning Wheeling Hampton Inn, dinner at The Metropolitan Citi Grille ($100 value), two tickets to your choice of one of the 2015-2016 Broadway series shows, and Hampton Inn shuttle service to dinner, Capitol Theatre and back to the Inn. Other prizes include a $500 Kroger gift certificate, and a “Pamper Your Pet” gift basket.

Tickets are $35 and can be purchased by calling 304-232-4625.

WTRF is a proud sponsor of the event.
