Chamber class to host fundraiser

Proceeds benefit United Way’s COVID-19 fund

The Blair County Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Blair County Class of 2021 is holding “A Day at the Races Around the Bases” to raise money for the United Way of Blair County’s COVID-19 Response Fund.

The United Way started the response fund in March 2020 to provide grocery vouchers to Blair County residents who were in need because of the pandemic.

A Day at the Races Around the Bases will be held May 22 at Peoples Natural Gas Field. The gates will open at 2 p.m. The event centers around betting on video horse races, a prize auction, 50/50, rip tickets and other small games of chance. A $50 donation per person gets admission to the event, two drink tickets, appetizers provided by local businesses and an all you can eat buffet.

The United Way is working to expand the fund to other areas of assistance that will directly benefit Blair County residents in need.

To order individual tickets, reserve a table or request more information, call McQuaide Blasko Attorneys at Law at 814-283-2000.
