GLENDORA GIRL SCOUT TROOP TO PRESENT CHECK FOR $3,300 TO BENEFIT RETIRED RACEHORSES ON SATURDAY AT SANTA ANITA; CHECK TO BE GIVEN TO CARMA IN WINNER’S CIRCLE CEREMONY
ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 11, 2019)–With horse safety and welfare of paramount concern, Glendora Girl Scout Troop 1834 has announced it will present the California Retirement Management Account (CARMA) with a check totaling $3,300 in a Winner’s Circle ceremony on Saturday at Santa Anita.
“Our girls have been out in the community and they have raised three hundred dollars for this incredible cause,” said Becky Hazelton, on behalf of Troop 1834. “Our girls are extremely proud to be able to help CARMA find homes for the many retired Thoroughbreds that they adopt out and we also want to thank all of those individual contributors, as well as Santa Anita, for contributing an additional $3,000 in order to make this happen.”
CARMA, which is based at Santa Anita Park, assists in retraining and placing retired Thoroughbreds with other after-care organizations as well as families and individuals, who are seeking to adopt these horses for pleasure riding and in some cases, competitive hunter-jumper competition.
Santa Anita, which proudly serves as CARMA’s leading funding mechanism, provides office space on-track and encourages fans and horsemen to assist in their efforts to rehabilitate and re-home hundreds of horses annually.
