Fritz Et Al Get In The Christmas Spirit

Published: December 1, 2011 10:23 am EST

This Sunday, December 4, the clubhouse at Windsor Raceway will be overflowing with generosity as employees from Caesars Windsor's Food & Beverage department, along with family and friends, will be raising money for Windsor's downtown mission

.

Anita Fritz, a standardbred horse owner/groom and Caesars Windsor Food & Beverage employee, has informed Trot Insider that she printed off 120 tickets (priced at $25 each) for a fundraiser simply entitled 'A Night At The Races.' The cost of the ticket covers a buffet dinner, $10 in free slots play, a free race program and Caesars Windsor cards or dice.

Not surprisingly, the 120 tickets sold out in just three weeks.

"I am an owner/groom and I thought what better way to bring the business I love to my fellow co-workers at Caesars Windsor and raise money for the downtown mission," Fritz, the organizer of the event, told Trot Insider.

She explained to Trot Insider that $9.71 from each ticket sold will be going to the downtown mission along with money raised through draws/raffles. "We also ask for a donation of a canned good for a chance to win a door prize," Fritz said.

"My family has been in the racing business for a long time, and what better way to support our sport then to bring in people who may never go to a racetrack and help raise money to support a great organization.

"This will be my second fundraiser with the Food & Beverage team of Caesars Windsor held at Windsor Raceway. Last year we raised money for the Children's Aid adopt a family program and did so well we also adopted a family from the hiatus house."
