The $25-per-person admission includes a buffet supper, races, and prizes for best decorated table and winning number of chips at the end of the evening. Races are “run” by volunteers “mounted” on decorated stick horses, who move along a numbered course according to the throw of giant foam dice.

Table reservations are $250 for a table of eight guests, including wine and reserved table perks.

Proceeds will support Zonta’s Conference Account, which helps defray the cost of member registration at Zonta’s District 9 conference, in October every other year.   Payment and RSVP can be mailed to Darleen Lyons, 22054 Parvin Dr., Santa Clarita, 91350.
