The third contest of the Free Friday Fun(d)raiser series will be offered on Friday, January 20, 2017. The new charity tournament series: Free Friday Fun(d)raiser will take place every Friday in 2017. The contest series is designed for novices and experts alike who would like to help raise awareness and funds for various horse racing charities. The contest will also appeal to those with limited resources whether time, money, or both.
In CharitableWager.com’s Free Friday Fun(d)raiser series, all participants will select horses in 5 mandatory races in a mythical bankroll handicapping contest where the winner gets to decide what charity receives all of the ‘weekly donation pool.’
The contest menu for the next Friday Fun(d)raiser contest is as follows:
- Aqueduct Race 7
- Oaklawn Park Race 6
- Oaklawn Park Race 8
- Santa Anita Race 5
- Santa Anita Race 7
Selections for the Free Friday Fun(d)raiser can be made via this Contest Entry Form. Contestants can follow contest updates via the hashtag #CWager on Twitter.
The Free Friday Fun(d)raiser series (FFF) has no entry fee. The winner will select from over a dozen horse racing themed charities. The FFF ‘weekly donation pool’ is currently US$5 (contributed by the Charitable Wager Host) plus all of ‘weekly’ donation fees of the sponsoring advertisers. 100% of FFF ‘weekly donation pool’ will go to the designated charity.
Additionally, in the 2017 Free Friday Fun(d)raiser series, contestants will earn contest points for the charities for which they were playing. Weekly winners will earn 60 points, weekly second place finishers will earn 20 points, third place finishers will earn 10 points. All other weekly participants will earn 1 point for their respective charities. The FFF ‘annual donation pool’ is currently US$100 (contributed by the Charitable Wager Host) plus all of ‘annual’ donation fees of the sponsoring advertisers. At the end of the FFF 2017 contest year (December 29th), the five charities with the most amassed points will receive 60%, 20%, 10%, 5% and 5% of the FFF ‘annual’ donation pool for first, second, third, fourth, and fifth place respectively.
While no donation is required to play in the Free Friday Fun(d)raiser series, contestants will be encouraged to donate $5, or however much they feel comfortable contributing, to the charity selected by winner of each weekly contest.
