Florida HBPA And Gulfstream Host Holiday Parties For Backstretch Families

The Florida Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association (FHBPA) and Gulfstream Park played host to holiday parties at Gulfstream Park and Palm Meadows earlier this week, providing food and toys to more than 650 families.

Workers at Gulfstream were invited to a holiday party on Monday while Palm Meadows workers were celebrated Tuesday. Along with dinner and refreshments, each child was given gifts. The FHBPA and Gulfstream will also host another event Friday at Gulfstream Park West.

“The kids were excited, each one received four or five gifts,” said Chaplain Tom LaPointe of His Place Ministries. LaPointe, who has helped at Florida racetracks since the late 1980s, added; “The kids had a lot of fun, it was great for the parents, as well as everyone who came out. Everyone took pictures and it was great to work with the FHBPA and Gulfstream.”

The FHBPA and Gulfstream will host Backstretch Appreciation Day in February.
