The Haven Day at the Races
Sunday, April 19, 2009 at
 Gulfstream Park



Boca Raton, FL – Plans are underway for The Haven Day at the Races, Sunday, April 19, 2009 at Gulfstream Park. The unique event will feature a lavish brunch, silent auction, raffle, entertainment and live horseracing. 


Honorary Chairs Peter and Anne Vegso, were the inspiration for the theme and venue. Horseracing enthusiasts as well as owners of thoroughbred horses, the Vegso’s are long-time supporters of the programs and services of The Haven.


Since the establishment of the Vegso Family Foundation in 1977, Peter and Anne have devoted much of their time and money to projects benefitting people in need.  Peter Vegso is the owner of Health Communications, Inc. (HCI), the internationally renowned book publisher best known for the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. 


Event chairs are Janice Williams and Lynda Levitsky, both highly regarded in the community for their dedication and commitment to charitable causes. “I am delighted to be a part of this extraordinary event,” said Williams. “This is surely a wonderful way for people to contribute to the important work of The Haven while having lots of fun,” she added. Levitsky, who had just returned from a visit to The Haven explained, “once I met the boys at The Haven and learned more about how their life situations are significantly changed by having a safe, loving environment to call home, I knew I had to be involved.”


An exciting range of unique, custom-tailored sponsorship opportunities are available that include sponsor-named horse races, winner’s circle celebrations, crawl board recognition and acknowledgement on the Gulfstream Jumbotron.


The Haven, founded in 1976, is a group home for adolescent boys, ages 9-17, who have been removed from abusive and neglectful homes and placed in protective care by the State of Florida.  The Haven’s programs are designed to foster the development of each young man’s self-esteem and independence in a safe, loving and stable environment while teaching 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 young men at The Haven and The Haven Day at the Races, please call (561) 483-0962
