The Woodbine Entertainment Group has launched ‘Woodbine Cares Week,’ which runs from Sept. 11 to Sept. 20. Featured in the initiative is a ‘Charity Challenge,’ which asks people to vote for their favourite charity from a list of WEG’s charitable partners. The Ontario Standardbred Adoption Society is encouraging anyone connected with harness racing to vote for the organization.

WEG has announced that it is asking its friends to vote for their favourite charity from a list of its charitable partners. The charity that gets the most votes by Sept. 19 will be awarded a $10,000 donation by the Woodbine Entertainment Group. A cheque will be presented to the winning charity on Sunday, September 21 at Woodbine Racetrack.

The Ontario Standardbred Adoption Society – which is an approved charitable organization that was founded in 1996 to assist in the adoption and relocation of retired and non-racing Standardbred horses within Ontario – has issued a release asking for people to vote for OSAS.

Adoption Society Seeks Support

The Ontario Standardbred Horse Association is calling upon everyone in harness racing for their help to win $10,000 in a contest launched today by Woodbine Entertainment Group called WEG Cares Week. They are offering all of the charities they support, including OSAS, the opportunity to win the prize money based on the number of votes they receive.

Founded in 1996, OSAS has placed hundreds of retired Standardbred horses into loving adoptive homes and monitor their progress after placement to ensure their health and safety.

OSAS is the only Standardbred charity in the WEG contest and we are asking anyone connected with harness racing to vote for us as that funding could make a significant difference in several horses’ lives. The charity which receives the highest number of votes, wins.

The contest runs from September 11 to 19 and the winner will be announced on September 21. To place your vote, please use the link below. Any help in sharing this contest via social media would be very much appreciated.
