Far Hills Race Meeting October 18, 2008 to Benefit Somerset Medical Center (Steeplechase)

Charity begins at home (and a good time is had by all) at the Far Hills Race Meeting to benefit Somerset Medical Center: http://www.farhillsrace.org/. I’ve only been once (October 2007), the sun was shining, the horses were running, the beer was flowing, the kids were playing in the mud, and I’ll hope the weather repeats in October 2008.

More than 50,000 spectators converge each Fall on the rolling hills of Moorland Farms in Far Hills, New Jersey, for the Garden State’s biggest social event of the season — The Far Hills Race Meeting. This year’s race — on Saturday, October 18, 2008 — will mark the 88th running, and the Far Hills Race features some of the finest steeplechasers in the world competing against a backdrop of autumn splendor in the Somerset Hills (and the Greater Roxiticus Valley).  I sure hope I can wangle an invitation from our good friends with the perfect parking spot.

Tickets go on sale online and in local stores on September 15, 2008.
