Night at the Races Returns Friday To Raise Funds for the United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley

WHEELING — After a two-year hiatus, Night at the Races with Blackjack is back.

The event, a fundraiser for the United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley, will be held Friday in the Terrace at Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack. Tickets are $35, which includes dinner and beer samples from Carenbauer Distributing.

Each attendee will receive two no-value chips and will be invited to the blackjack tables with fun local celebrity dealers. Additional chips will be available for purchase, 10 for $5, and there will be a prize table to cash in chips. The player with the highest chip count wins a prize package from Blame My Roots Festival that includes two weekend passes and a camp stay.

Money raised at Friday’s event goes to the 2021-22 United Way Campaign, “Give Where You Live,” where what is raised here stays here. All donations will support community members of the Upper Ohio Valley.

Sponsors for the night include: Win — Pepsi, Around the World Gourmet, Wheeling Island Casino and WTRF; Place — The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register; and Show — Cornerstone Group, Costanzo & Associates, Lamar Advertising, Main Street Bank, HE Neumann, Youth Services System and Cardinal Operating Company, Altmeyer Funeral Homes, WesBanco and Edward Jones – Dan Young

Annual sponsors of the United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley include Comcast, WVU Medicine Wheeling Hospital, MPLX, Belmont Savings Bank, The Health Plan, Kalkreuth Roofing & Sheet Metal, the Ziegenfelder Co., Williams and Leveltek.
