Star Charities annual Western night at Ocean Downs, July 9

(July 9, 2015) Ocean Pines-based nonprofit Star Charities is going a little bit country for its annual Western Night fundraiser at the Racetrack Clubhouse at Ocean Downs tonight, Thursday.
Kicking off at 4:30 p.m., the event will feagture live entertainment, simulcast harness racing, door prizes, a 50/50 raffle and a buffet.
Tickets are $26, and proceeds will benefit Parkinson’s research.
Organizer Anna Foultz said the disease is particularly prevalent in Ocean Pines.
“We’re trying to get money to support research and try and stop it, because there is no cure,” she said. “It’s a horrible disease and the money we raise is going to stay right here in Ocean Pines.”
Star Charities supports more than a dozen local and national organizations and causes, including Alzheimer’s research, the American Cancer Society, the Girl Scouts and Diakonia.
“It’s a lot of phone calls and a lot of organizing and the girls in my group are so happy to do it because we are doing it to help people who suffer,” Foultz said. “We keep doing it because it’s something we’re doing from our hearts.”
The nonprofit will also hold its annual drive for wounded soldiers at the Deer Run Golf Course Clubhouse on Sept. 19.
For more information, call Foultz at 410-641-7667, or Barbara Mazzel at 410-208-0430.
