About "A Night at the Races"


A Night at the Races on February 23 is the ultimate evening featuring professional horse racing on the big screen. Join us to cheer on your horse to victory while enjoying cocktails, seated dinner, live music, and more. Our sponsors are invited to the Jockey Club for a pre-event VIP cocktail hour with hors d'oeuvres and Reservoir Distillery bourbon tasting.


All attendees will receive "J bucks" to bet on a horse to win for each race. At the conclusion of each race, winners will be awarded a ticket to enter a drawing for a variety of fabulous prizes. This event will also include an opportunity to make a gift during the Tzedakah portion of the evening.


Dinner will be served in compostable boxes that will benefit the Preschool Edible Garden.


A Night at the Races supports the Carole and Marcus Weinstein Jewish Community Center's efforts to build a foundation of wellness in our community and help individual families live healthier and happier lives. Proceeds support the Weinstein JCC mission to ensure our programs, resources, and services are accessible and open to all.
