Race at the Raffle 2018

Saturday, April 14th, 5:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.

Tangier, 532 W Market Street, Akron, Ohio 44303

Race at the Raffle is CANAPI's signature fundraising event. The event features pre-recorded horse races selected at random; participants may purchase or sponsor (and name, for better or worse) horses in several races or simply bet on a predicted victor. A race announcer hilariously narrates races using names chosen by participants. Event tickets correspond to an ongoing reverse raffle. Spice it up further with our 50/50 raffle, sideboard, silent auction and live auction. To the victor go the spoils! Open bar, hors d'oeuvres offered.

Come dressed in your best derby outfit! The best outfit will win 50/50 raffle tickets and a secret prize compliments of CANAPI.

Money raised at Race at the Raffle goes directly to CANAPI programming. Must be present or represented to win 50/50 or reverse raffle.

Ticket sales to begin January 2018!
