ARLINGTON PARK AND TRACKSIDE OTBs JOIN STATE TREASURER IN TOYS FOR TOTS DRIVE FOR THIRD STRAIGHT YEAR
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (Nov. 10, 2003) -- For the third consecutive year, Arlington Park and its seven Trackside OTB locations will participate in the Toys For Tots Annual Drive, sponsored by the United States Marine Corps in conjunction with Judy Baar Topinka, Illinois State Treasurer, beginning today and continuing through Dec. 8.
This year marks the 54th year of the annual "Giving From The Heart" campaign.
Special Toys for Tots boxes will be located at the track's administrative office as well as the seven Trackside locations to collect toys for needy children throughout the state. At the Trackside locations, all toys should be dropped off either at the program counter or Twin Spires Club Center.
As an added incentive to customers, Twin Spires Club members will receive 1,000 bonus points by donating a new toy from Friday, Nov. 28 through Saturday, Dec. 6 at any Trackside OTB throughout Illinois.
Topinka will appear in person at Trackside Arlington Park to collect the toys sometime later in December. Last year, Arlington presented the State Treasurer with over 400 gifts.
Arlington Park, the Chicago area's premier Thoroughbred racetrack located in Arlington Heights, Ill., will run a 96-day meet in 2004 from Friday, May 14 through Sunday, Sept. 19. Arlington Park, whose parent company is Churchill Downs Incorporated (Nasdaq: CHDN), also operates seven off-track, simulcast-wagering facilities: Trackside Arlington Park (Arlington Heights), Trackside Quad City Downs (East Moline), Trackside Chicago, Trackside McHenry, Trackside Rockford, Trackside Waukegan and Longshots featuring Trackside OTB in South Elgin.
