HELP HAWTHORNE PROVIDE BOOKS FOR KIDS
During August, Hawthorne is partnering with Bernie’s Book Bank to collect books for Chicagoland families. Book ownership empowers children and transforms lives! But 61% of low-income families have no books for children at home. Bernie’s Book Bank has provided over 24 MILLION books to Chicagoland children who each receive 8 books annually from birth through 6th grade.
DONATE A BOOK WIN A BET
Donate a children’s book (gently used or new for kids younger than junior high school) at Hawthorne Race Course or ANY Club Hawthorne Betting Bar for a chance to win a weekly $100 bet during August. Drawings on Sundays after Hawthorne’s 5th race.
BET WITH JIM & EMILY
Jim Miller and Emily Gullikson will also be building a bankroll for Bernie’s Book Bank with a $100 bet on Hawthorne races. Follow their plays on Twitter and the Hawthorne simulcast each live race day.
PARTY FOR BOOKS: TRAVERS STAKES DAY
Join Jim & Emily on Saturday, August 26th for a special edition pool party to support Bernie’s. Details are forthcoming, but save the date to join us at Club Hawthorne in Prospect Heights!
