Throughout the day, patrons are also invited to check out the pink lemonade stand, silent auction and pink hat contest, which will award cash prizes for “best hats in show.” Beginning at 5pm the evening will include world class thoroughbred racing including the $100,000 Pink Ribbon Stakes.
“This will be the eighth year we have proudly partnered with Susan G. Komen’s West Virginia Affiliate to help in funding services, screenings and treatments for a disease that has touched so many of us and the level at which our employees and the community have embraced the Race for the Ribbon is inspiring,” said Scott Saunders, Charles Town’s General Manager. “I look forward to taking part in the 5K and will hopefully get to do so with some of our fellow local business and community leaders.”By:
