CANAPI's Race at the Raffle 2016 Fundraiser

In its continuing mission to empower local HIV-positive and LGBTQ populations, Community AIDS Network/Akron Pride Initiative (CANAPI) will hold its annual Race at the Raffle event to benefit the organization’s programming.

Race at the Raffle, CANAPI’s signature fundraising event, will be held:

The event features pre-recorded horse races selected at random; participants may purchase or sponsor (and name, for better or worse) horses in several races or simply bet on a predicted victor. A race announcer hilariously narrates races using names chosen by participants. Event tickets correspond to an ongoing reverse raffle. Spice it up further with our 50/50 raffle, sideboard, silent auction and live auction. To the victor go the spoils! Open bar, hors d’oeuvres offered.

NEW THIS YEAR, come dressed in your best derby outfit! The best outfit will win 50/50 raffle tickets and a secret prize compliments of CANAPI.

Money raised at Race at the Raffle goes directly to CANAPI programming. Must be present or represented to win 50/50 or reverse raffle.
