Boca Raton, FL – An enthusiastic crowd turned out at Gulfstream Park’s Christine Lee’s for The Haven Day at the Races.  Appropriately attired in “derby chic,” guests kicked off the much-heralded afternoon by bidding on a huge assortment of enticing silent auction gifts.  Funds raised at The Haven Day at the Races will make a powerful difference in the lives of at-risk adolescent boys who receive life-changing services at The Haven that support and guide them as they grow and develop into independent, responsible adult members of the community.

 

While enjoying a delicious Asian-themed buffet lunch, guests watched and placed bets on the afternoon’s thoroughbred horse races.  Honorary Chairs, Peter and Anne Vegso, long-time supporters of the programs and services of The Haven and horseracing enthusiasts as well as owners of thoroughbred race horses, were the inspiration for the theme of The Haven Day at the Races. Vegso Stables fielded an entry in the day’s fifth race, a filly named “Entertaining.” The crowd erupted when “Entertaining” won the race, truly contributing to the perfect afternoon. The winning silks, specially designed for The Haven Day at the Races, were signed by Peter Vegso, the trainer and the winning jockey and auctioned off to a lucky bidder.

 

Special award presentations, courtesy of Tiffany & Co. were presented to the Vegsos; Triple Crown Sponsor, Donald and Deborah Mullaney; and event chair Lynda Levitsky. All were thanked for their dedication and commitment to the young men at The Haven and for their contributions to the success of The Haven Day at the Races.  Ron Nicoletti, Gulfstream’s popular handicapper, served as the event’s guest emcee.  Throughout the day, he thanked The Haven Day at the Races Daily Double sponsors:  Ellis, Hodes & Goldberg, Fox Pan American Sports, Fromberg, Perlow and Kunik, P.A., The Mack Group,Inc., NCCI Holdings and Kenneth J. Strauss.

 

Don Stewart, The Haven’s executive director, gave special thanks to Gulfstream Park General Manager, Bill Murphy and his team for their outstanding efforts and cooperation. He then introduced former residents of The Haven who spoke openly about their positive life-changing experiences at the group home.

 

In keeping with the afternoon’s theme, guests enjoyed sporting pins that demonstrated their purchase of raffle tickets.  Raffle gifts were: an exquisite 18kt white gold “Criss Cross” diamond ring, courtesy of Gregory’s Fine Jewelry; a two-hour cruise aboard a new Marine Max Sea Ray 50 ft. yacht complete with captain and dinner for four at Blue Moon Fish Company; and a Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Gift Basket, including an overnight stay.

 

The Haven, founded in 1976, is a group home for adolescent boys, ages 9-17, who have been placed in protective care by the State of Florida.  From their five-acre campus in Boca Raton, The Haven provides programs designed to foster the development of each young man’s self-esteem and independence. In a safe, loving and stable environment, the young men are taught the skills necessary for them to become self-sufficient and proud adults. The Haven is nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA), and recently received its fourth-consecutive four-star rating from Charity Navigator, a national charity watchdog group.  For more information on helping the boys at The Haven please call (561) 483-0962 or visit www.haven4kids.org.
