Cloverdale ‘Race for Babies’ on Oct. 17

CLOVERDALE — Fraser Downs Racetrack Casino is again the place for Race for Babies, the annual fundraiser for Surrey Food Bank’s Tiny Bundles program.

This year’s event will be held on Friday, Oct. 17, starting at 5:30 p.m.

The $60 ticket includes a buffet dinner, live entertainment, live and silent auctions and harness-racing action on the track.

The Tiny Bundles program provides weekly food hampers to pregnant women and mothers with children under the age of one.

The Now newspaper-sponsored Race for Babies has raised more than $32,000 for the program over the past three years.

"It’s a wonderful event," said Margot Gauley, who organizes Race for Babies on behalf of the Now.

"After experiencing an actual ‘Tiny Bundles Day’ at Surrey Food Bank a while ago, it was a huge eye-opener to witness all the people in need – right here in our neighbourhood. It’s a very rewarding experience for us at the Now newspaper to pay it forward and offer our help with support from our generous sponsors."

To purchase tickets to the event, contact Gauley at 604-572-0064, ext. 5114, or
