Gulfstream Park to hold fundraiser for sick 15-year-old


Gulfstream Park and its owners, trainers and jockeys will hold a fundraiser next Sunday for Chaminade-Madonna student Stephanie Schriefer,
who is battling Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer.

Schriefer is a 15-year-old racing fan who attended Little Flower Catholic School with the daughters of jockey John Velazquez and former rider Jose Santos. She is undergoing chemotherapy at Joe Dimaggio Children’s Hospital.

Several tables will be set up throughout the track on Sunday with blue bracelets and T-shirts for purchase. Volunteers will also go throughout the plant carrying jockey boots collecting donations, with all proceeds to go to Schriefer and her family to help pay for her treatments.
