Annual Fundraising Events

A Day at the Races to Benefit Vision of Hope Schools

Each Spring, we host two Day at the Races events. One is held at the Santa Anita Racetrack, just outside of Los Angeles, to support our five schools in the LA Archdiocese. The second is held at Golden Gate Fields in Berkeley to support our three Bay Area Schools. Come once and you will come every year! The excitement, the races, and the exciting auction all keep our guests coming back year after year. See below to for more details on how to attend.
