Jockeys to Hold Fundraiser Saturday, July 11th, 2009
Erie, PA – Jockeys at Presque Isle Downs & Casino will hold a fundraiser for The Don MacBeth Memorial Jockey’s Fund on Saturday, July 11th beginning at 4:30pm.
With a contribution to the fund, Presque Isle Downs’ jockeys will autograph pictures for fans between races one and six.
The Don MacBeth Memorial Jockey’s Fund was established in memory of MacBeth who died of cancer on March 1, 1987. This staunchly supported charity was co-founded in late 1987 by actor/comedian Tim Conway and July McCarron, wife of Hall of Fame Jockey, Chris McCarron to assist injured and disabled riders.
Live racing continues every Wednesday through Sunday with a post time of 5:30pm.
