BALMORAL PARK CELEBRATES WITH A “NIGHT OF FREE” THIS WEDNESDAY
NO SUCH THING AS A FREE MEAL? NOT TRUE!
Balmoral Park is out to prove the saying “No such thing as a free meal” completely untrue. In addition to hosting LIVE RACING that evening, Balmoral Park will treat fans to a FREE Dinner, FREE T-shirt, FREE Handicapping Contest and FREE autographs by former Bear and current host on WSCR-AM “The Score” Doug Buffone.
“Traditionally we do our promotions on the weekends but there are people who work weekends and can’t attend, so we figured we would shake it up and do something fun in the middle of the week,” commented Director of Marketing Ken Churilla. “Everyone loves to eat, we have a lot of cool T-shirts that people will love, the Bears are doing well and who doesn’t love good ole #55 Doug Buffone? It all just makes sense.”
Doors open at 5:30 pm and the first race goes off at 7:10 pm. As always, parking and admission are always free. All offers while supplies last. There is no purchase necessary to take advantage of any of the free offers.
• FREE DINNER (6:30 pm-8:30 pm)
o Patrons are invited to enjoy a free fried chicken and baby back rib buffet. (while supplies last)
• FREE T-SHIRTS (5:30 pm-9 pm)
