Lone Star: Fundraisers on Tuesday, Wednesday for Don MacBeth


There are two fun and significant fundraisers for the Don MacBeth Memorial Jockey Fund in the next few days at Lone Star Park. There is a doubleheader softball game between the local jockey colony and the track's employees on Tuesday night, at the ballpark adjacent to Lone Star. The suggested ticket donation is $5. The first game starts at 7:30 p.m. Central.

The following night, a dinner, show and stick-horse auction will be held in the Champions Ballroom on the second floor of the grandstand at Lone Star. Tickets are $20. The theme for the show is 'Dancing with the Jockeys' while live music will be provided by the Even-Money Band led by jockey Cliff Berry.

Live racing action will return Thursday night at 6:35 p.m.
