Night at the Races
ANDREW LEIBENGUTH/SPECIAL TO THE TIMES NEWS
The Tamaqua Elks Lodge 592 held their biannual Night at the Races event this past Saturday to raise scholarship funds for eight boys and girls from the Tamaqua, Panther Valley, Marian, and Lehighton School Districts, each receiving a $250 scholarship. Their Night at the Races is a social and fundraising event consisting of actual horse racing that's been video-taped using cinematographic cameras, narrated from start to finish by an announcer and viewed on a large screen at the Elks Lodge for guests to bet on. Hundreds of Elks members and guests attended the event, including dedicated members of the past Lehighton Elks Lodge.
