Staff and volunteers at The Carolina Cup Racing Association have a big goal this year -- to make charitable contributions that exceed last year’s mark of more than a quarter million dollars.
The fundraising begins with the 81st running of The Carolina Cup, which is set for March 30th, 2013 at the Springdale Race Course in Camden.
“Everybody knows that, in Camden, we tailgate with style, but a lot of folks don’t know that we also tailgate with a heart!” said Teri Leigh Teed, Assistant Director of the CCRA. “When you look at money given to KershawHealth, the Jaycees, the Junior Welfare League along with tickets donated to military families, it comes to more than $250,000.”
Discount general admission tickets are on sale for $30 each until Saturday, March 16. After that, the price goes up to $45. Learn more about tickets, parking and box seats.
The Carolina Cup Racing Association, a non-profit organization, relies on the Carolina Cup and the Colonial Cup races to fulfill its mission of operating Springdale Race Course as both an equestrian and tourism center. Springdale Race Course is a world-renowned, 600-acre European style Thoroughbred racehorse training center that operates year-round and is home to Hall of Fame trainers Jonathan Sheppard and Janet Elliot. Famous equine residents have included Flat Top, Storm Cat, Forever Together, Zacchio and Ruffian. Learn more at www.carolina-cup.org
