A Night at the Races at Los Alamitos

Join us for this very fun evening of “playing the ponies” – horse racing, sumptuous buffet dining, no-host bar, live and silent auctions as we raise funds for our scholarships and grants for women and girls. Tables will be set for eight in the Finish Line Room, a private area in the Vessels Club where the excitement of quarter horse racing rises to a new level of luxury and comfort. This upscale facility is located on the top level of the Los Alamitos Grandstand perfectly situated over the course finish line for ultimate viewing.  Guys and Dolls can dress the part! Pearls for the ladies, hats for the fellas. Use your imagination and join the merrymaking. A record of your reservation will be at the registration table when you arrive at the Vessels Club. (No tickets will be issued for this event). If you have questions, please do send us an email at or call Jaye at (562) 596-6859. We look forward to seeing you and thank you for your support.
