A Night at the Races

Things here at Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School & Academy have always been exciting, and lately even more so! In support of our growing student population we are making major investments around campus, including renovations to some of our original 60-year old fixtures. Due to these upgrades needing to be completed prior to the start of next school year, and some affecting the availability of our facilities, we have decided to move our upcoming June 4 event in support of scholarships, “A Night at the Races,” to next spring. With that said, mark your calendars now for Saturday, April 29, 2023, for an evening of excitement complete with horse racing, betting, derby hats, and all around fun!
As a reminder, a "Night at the Races" will be an exciting evening filled with friends, food, cash bar, betting, raffles, and horse racing, all benefiting scholarship opportunities for the students at Cardinal Stritch. Dress is casual attire, but feel free to wear your Derby style hat to really get into the theme!
The evening will consist of 10 pre-recorded races, featuring 10 horses per race, shown on a large screen. Nine races will be sold prior to the event. The horses for the 10th race will be auctioned during the event. Owners of the winning horses will receive a prize and ultimate bragging rights. There is no limit on how many horses you may purchase, but only 90 horses will be sold prior to the event. Horse owners and horse names will be printed in the event program and announced during the race. Even if you are unable to attend, you can still be a horse owner! Horses will be randomly selected per race prior to the event.

Race sponsorship is also available for each of the 10 races. Sponsorship includes a half page ad on the race page as well as being announced prior to the race. Sponsors will be displayed at the event as well as acknowledged leading up to the event.

Purchasers that have multiple horses and/or race sponsorships, will not be featured in the same race(s).

Registration will go live in the Fall of '22, but if you have any questions prior to that please contact Janet Navarre Hohenberger '07 at 419.693.0465 ext. 216 or via email at [email protected] or Barbara Boyle Dianda '79 at 419.693.04665 ext. 217 or via email at [email protected].
