Be An Owner on Belmont Day

- Or at least sit in one of their boxes. The Belmont Child Care Association (BCCA), a non-profit organization which has established an on-site childcare center for the benefit of working families at New York area racetracks, and which provides scholarships to those unable to afford the cost of care, is raffling off an owner's box on the finish line at Belmont for the big day. Please check out their website for more information. The organization also holds a star-studded fundraiser in Saratoga each summer; this year's scheduled for August 22 at the Gideon Putnam Hotel.

Raffle tickets cost $5, or five for $20. There are several way to enter. You can call BCCA at 516-488-2103 and purchase them via credit card; email your card information to or fax it to 516-488-1410, or mail a check (or CC number) to: The Belmont Child Care Association / Belmont Park - Gate 6 / 2150 Hempstead Turnpike, Elmont, NY 11003. But please note that entries must be in by Friday at noon!

Bless you for posting about Anna House. I would urge anyone who hasn't to pay a visit to this wonderful institution. And of course, to support it. Unfortunately, I scoured the web-site and couldn't find any mention of the Belmont Stakes box raffle. Folks better just call direct for info. I understand that the box was donated by out-going NYTHA President Richard Bomze, a real class act.
