VERNON,  NJ- Pass It Along will be hosting its Night At The Races event on Friday, November 13 at the Red Tail Lodge at Mountain Creek in Vernon. The event will feature a performance by local favorites, From Good Homes.

A Night at the Races is a themed fundraiser that uses real races that have been pre-recorded and narrated by top announcers. To complete the Kentucky Derby theme, Pass It Along is asking their guests to dress for the races and earn extra PIA Bucks, the fake currency of the evening. The races will be shown on television screens throughout the Red Tail Lodge in between sets from the band.

As the presenting sponsor, Mountain Creek has provided a discounted hotel rate for guests attending the event who wish to remain for the night at Mountain Creek Resort. The discounted rate is only good for a short time and is available on a first come, first serve basis.
