The Max Cure Foundation is pleased to have been chosen as The Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment Group’s charity for the month of May, 21014. Beginning May 2nd Meadowlands Racing, guests who make a $1 donation to the Charity of the Month will receive a rubber horse to throw into the window of a moving car. The Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment Group will match every dollar raised from the sale of the rubber horses and donate the proceeds to The Max Cure Foundation. Winners who get the horse in the window will be entered into a grand prize drawing to win a brand-new Toyota Scion as well as win the chance for a $100 betting voucher. The drawing will take place on Saturday, August 2.
“We are thrilled to be chosen as the charity for the month of May,” said David Plotkin, Chairman of the Max Cure Foundation. “It’s a win-win for everyone — racing fans can play a fun game, while making a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer. We are very appreciative of the Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment Group’s support,” he added.
The Max Cure Foundation will also be a key player at Jersey Fest on May 31 with their signature Dunk Your Kicks program. Dunk Your Kicks collects gently used sneakers and sells them to a recycler. The money raised is used for pediatric cancer causes and all guests are encouraged to “dunk their kicks” and donate sneakers. Former NFL linebacker (Indianapolis Colts and Dallas Cowboys), Quentin Coryatt, will be in attendance to help collect sneakers and to demonstrate “The Perfect Jumper,” a unique training aid for basketball players of all levels. Coryatt will donate a percentage of all proceeds from the sales of The Perfect Jumper at Jersey Fest to The Max Cure Foundation.
Jersey Fest is sponsored by Exposure North Jersey who will include the Food Truck Mash Up, a food lover’s dream including over 50 food trucks in one area, in this year’s festival. Jersey Fest includes harness racing, live music, great food, dedicated beer garden, entertainment, a Dunk Your Kicks basketball shoot and more. It runs from 5pm to 11pm and is both free admission and free parking.
We are honored to be a part of this event and are grateful to our friend and long-time supporter, T.H. Waldman and the team at Exposure North Jersey, for always thinking about Max Cure. We are also thankful that The Meadowlands selected us as the Charity of the Month and encourage all our local fans to donate a dollar and hopefully win a brand-new Toyota Scion. Remember to clean out your closets of used sneakers and Dunk Your Kicks for pediatric cancer on May 31st!
