Los Al RTCA to Hold Auction Jan. 9

Fundraiser to be part of PCQHRA Awards Banquet.

The Los Alamitos division of the Race Track Chaplaincy of America will host its 12th annual auction to raise funds to help the men, women and children of the horse racing industry in conjunction with the Pacific Coast Quarter Horse Racing Association Awards Banquet on Thursday, January 9, at Los Alamitos Race Course.

In 2013, this live and silent auction raised over $25,000, which provided the Los Alamitos racetrack community with great programs like Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas celebrations, beach outings, BBQs and more. Over the years, more than $300,000 has been raised through these auctions.

This local, autonomous, chapter of the national organization has taken over the task of serving the spiritual, emotional and social service needs of people that live and work at Los Alamitos Race Course. Through the chaplaincy, vital services and goodwill are provided to backstretch personnel and front side staff. Below is a list of items available at this year’s Los Alamitos RTCA Silent Auction. Items are being added daily. For more info, please visit www.losalamitos.com or e-mail larace@losalamitos.com.
