Hoosier Park is known for hospitality and many of the horsemen on the backstretch at the track helped provide a fantastic addition to Kammys Kause during Dan Patch Weekend Saturday, Aug. 11 and Sunday, Aug. 12. Several of the trainers provided barn tours to those involved in the fundraiser prior to racing Saturday.
The afternoon also included “Karts for a Kause,” offering rides on the track for a $20 donation to Kammy’s Kause before racing Saturday. Family activities led into racing, with the Saturday concerts getting underway at 9 p.m. Activities for Kammys Kause began at noon on Sunday.
Kammys Kause is a fundraiser for 4-p, which is also known as Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, a rare disorder involving the 4p chromosome. They partnered with Hoosier Park to showcase 22 local musicians and bands over two programs on multiple stages. The event included a 125-mile motorcycle ride that began in Fortville and arrived at the concert venue at the track on Sunday.
