The 52nd annual Harness Race Rally, presented by the Friends of Akron Children’s Hospital, took place Aug. 2 at Northfield Park. The event featured dinner, music and harness racing, but the highlight of the evening was a raffle for a new car, and other prizes.
This year’s raffle winners are:
- 2013 Chrysler 200: Richard Greene
- Diamond ring: Chuck Penzenik
- Diamond necklace: Melissa Martin
- Ride on AirBear®: Marsha Bollinger
- Sheraton Suites package: James D’flauto
- Jukebox: Donna Wakeland
- Apple ® iPad: Joan Dye
Proceeds from the sale of this year’s raffle tickets benefited Akron Children’s Hospital’s School and Community Oncology Outreach Program (S.C.O.O.P.), which raises awareness about childhood cancer in schools and communities.
“It’s amazing the time and talent of the Friends, who put on this event every year,” said John Zolio, executive director of Akron Children’s Hospital Foundation. “The Friends have raised more than $3 million dollars for the hospital from this event alone.”
Thanks to everyone who supported this year’s event.
