NYRA To Donate $100,000 To American Red Cross For Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief
OZONE PARK, N.Y. – The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) today announced it will contribute to Hurricane Sandy disaster relief in New York with a $100,000 donation to the American Red Cross.
“So many communities surrounding Aqueduct Racetrack and Belmont Park were devastated by Hurricane Sandy,” said NYRA President and Chief Operating Officer Ellen McClain. “We want to provide whatever support we can as these areas begin the long recovery process.”
“Although more than 100 trees fell between our two downstate tracks and wind damaged some structures, we consider ourselves extremely fortunate,” McClain continued. “All horses and humans residing on our property weathered the storm safely, but Sandy has affected employees, horsemen, and farms. NYRA embraces its responsibility as a leader in both the community and the horse racing industry by making a meaningful contribution to the disaster relief fund raising efforts.”
