Scholarship Event

You don’t have to be from Aztec to have been affected by, or want to help, after the December tragedy at Aztec High School. The Sun Ray Park and AZTECSTRONGSJC are working together so you’ll have an opportunity to help or receive help.

On Saturday, June 16th at the Sun Ray Park race track, there will be ten horse races. Ten blankets have been sponsored for the ten winning horses. You’ll be able to buy raffle tickets for a chance to win a variety of prizes. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5. Money from the sponsored blankets and raffle ticket sales will fund scholarships for trade school or college for two graduates of EACH of ten local high schools. In addition, San Juan College donated four $500 scholarships for graduates to attend there. You must enter and be present to win any scholarships or raffles.

Post time for the first race is 1:15 p.m., and a handicapping class for race track newbies starts at 12:30 p.m. Drawing for the scholarships will be after the last race. The event culminates with a live music TBA.
