Your Help Needed for "Night at the Races"

SOLON, Ohio  -   As you have seen posted at the pool and here on our website, the Solon Stars Swim Club will be hosting a "Night at the Races " event on XXXXXXXX at the Solon Valley Party Center (Knights of Columbus Hall) on Melbury Avenue in Solon  Plans are well underway to make this a fun evening for our Stars parents and their friends, including food catered by the Chicago Deli of Solon, beverages, auctions, horse races, prizes, and general fun!  We are looking for additional volunteers to help make this event a success for our club.

Horse Sponsorships and Race Naming:  Sell naming rights for horses and races.  If you know an individual or organization that would like to sponsor a race ($100) or name a horse for your  favorite swimmer ($20), please contact Rich Iler at or 440-546-3867 

Betting Windows and Side Boards:  Volunteers to support betting windows and side boards at the event as well as the silent auction. We need support for the following:

SHIFT 1-set-up [5:00 - 6:00]   NEED 3 volunteers

SHIFT 2-side boards only [6:00 -    7:00]  NEED 6 volunteers

SHIFT 3-racing [7:00 -    8:00]  NEED 8 volunteers

SHIFT 4-racing [8:00 -    9:00]  NEED 11 volunteers

SHIFT 5-racing [9:00 – 10:00]  NEED 11 volunteers

SHIFT 6-silent auction/sideboards [10:00-]  NEED 2 volunteers

Please contact Suzanne Sharkus at indicate which shift you would be willing to support and if there is any position you prefer (betting window, side board, silent auction set-up). We already have 3 “SuperStarsý but really need our parents to support the betting windows and side boards.

Racing Program:  We need a volunteer to organize and prepare content for the racing program to be printed by FedEx Kinkos in Solon.  If you can assist in this effort, please contact Rich Iler at or 440-546-3867.

Reservations:  Make your reservations now for our event on April 25, 2009.  Contact Cathy Lautenschleger as soon as possible.

Silent Auction Donations:  Secure donations of good/services for the silent auction.  We have received a number of valuable items already and plan to create a booklet prior to the event so you know what to bid on.  If you have an item to donate or know someone who would be willing to donate an item, please contact Rich Iler.
