Good Times and Great Horse Racing at Monmouth Park with the RBR Education Foundation

The RBREF's Day at the Races was a sure bet for a fun afternoon.

The Red Bank Regional Education Foundation’s 3rd annual “Day at the Races” at Monmouth Park Race Track on Saturday Sept. 22 was a sold-out, sunny (if a bit windy) day of fun for parents, students, families and teachers.  

With the help of student servers from RBR’s International Baccalaureate program, Vince Pappagallo of Little Silver’s Chef Shack provided a delicious array of choices for lunch. Meanwhile, many of the kids in attendance (and some adults, including Little Silver’s Mayor Bob Neff) lined up to have their faces painted by the RBR art student volunteers. In between races, people also stopped by the Buc Stop table to check out the new gear in RBR's colors. 

Carol Johnson, of Little Silver, won the 50/50 raffle and generously donated a portion of her winnings back to the RBREF.  She also had her picture taken in the winner’s circle following the RBREF’s sponsored race. 

The RBREF would like to express our sincere thanks to everyone who attended and to the following people and businesses who helped make the day a success: Vince Pappagallo of the Chef Shack in Little Silver, Tom and Eileen Caruso of Ye Olde Pie Shoppe in Little Silver, Bill Denver of Equi-Photo, Inc., Steve Feldkamp of Little Silver Wealth Management, Frank & Terri Helmka of Spirits Unlimited in Shrewsbury, Melissa McGuire of the Two River Times, Michele Laferrera of Point Pleasant Distributors and Monmouth Park Race Track.  A big thank you as well to the students volunteers who served lunch and painted faces.

Finally, thank you to Marianne Kligman, RBR’s Community Information Officer, and Cindy Neff, Board Member, for the great photos, as well as, to Bill Denver of Equi-Photo for the great shot in the winner’s circle.
