Tickets Still Available for Day at the Races

Arkansas Tech University alumni and friends still have time to register to attend the “Day at the Races” at Oaklawn Racing and Gaming in Hot Springs.  The event is taking place on Saturday, March 20.

The first race for the day begins at 1 p.m., and Tech fans in attendance will have a reserved seating area.

The fifth race for the day will be named the Arkansas Tech Alumni Classic in honor of the Arkansas Tech alumni and friends attending the day’s races.

Angela Bonds, director of alumni relations, says she hopes lots of Tech graduates are able to make the trip to Hot Springs.  She adds, “We hope to have a great day in Hot Springs with lots of alumni joining us for the event.”

This is the second time the Arkansas Tech Alumni Association has hosted an event at Oaklawn.  Last year, about 50 alumni gathered to watch the races.

All alumni and friends are invited to attend the event.  The tickets cost $7 per person and must be purchased in advance.

To find out more or to purchase tickets, call the Alumni Office at 479-968-0242.
