In addition, attending families will be treated to a sit-down turkey dinner, lively entertainment from the March Madness Marching Band and the McTaggart Irish Dancers, and a photo op with Santa.

Blue Grass Farms Charities is asking the racing community to join together to make grassroots donations to the toy/hat/gloves drive for these children at, or else by visiting the charity’s website, and “click here to donate” next to the photo of the happy child.
