Each week, the CharitableWager.com Host will donate US$5 (plus advertising fees) to the charity selected by the winning entrant. Contestants aren’t obligated to donate but are encouraged to give US$5 or however much they feel comfortable contributing. Those who would like to contribute to Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Fund can do so through this linked web page.
The mission at Old Friends is to provide a dignified retirement for our Thoroughbreds, champions and “unknowns” alike. Your tax deductible gift will help ensure that we not only continue to provide for the care of these marvelous athletes, but also will help us to continue to expand our facility for more horses.
Additionally, charities represented in the weekly Free Friday Fun(d)raiser contest will earn points in the annual standings. The charities will earn 60, 20, and 10 points when their proxies finish first, second and third respectively. Additionally, charities will amass an additional 1 point for each player who represented them but did not finish in the top 3. At the end of the year, the top 5 charities in the annual points standings will receive 60%, 20%, 10%, 5%, and 5% of the annual donation pool. The annual donation pool is the combination of a $100 donation from the host and advertising fees on the FFF web pages.
