Community Action Partnership of Western Nebraska’s Foundation will be holding their signature event, A Nite at the Races, this Friday evening at the Gering Civic Center.
The annual fundraiser provides an opportunity for guests to enjoy a fun evening for a good cause.
CAPWN Director Margo Hartman says guests receive “funny money” along with each admission ticket.
They will then bet on races throughout the evening with their “funny money”, and then use their “winnings” to bet on live auction items. A silent auction and 50/50 raffle will also be held.
CAPWN Board President Joan Cromer told KNEB News the foundation plays an important role for CAPWN. Meeting community needs all across Western Nebraska is what Community Action Partnership of Western Nebraska is all about. In a nutshell we are about Helping People, Changing Lives.
But sometimes, there are projects that arise which have not been funded through the Community Action Partnership of Western Nebraska budget process.
That’s where the Community Action Partnership of Western Nebraska Foundation comes in.
Cromer said they act to help Community Action Partnership of Western Nebraska by reaching out for charitable contributions that ultimately can be used for further service to the community.
The Foundation enhances all the good that the folks of Community Action Partnership of Western Nebraska do each and every day.
Advance tickets for this Friday’s “Night at the Races” are $30 each, or they can be purchased at the door for $35.
Get tickets at the CAPWN office at 3350 10th Street, or call 635-3089.
