Because I like to plug my own stuff...

Unlike Billy Bob Thornton, (see below), who doesn't like to get any kind of exposure at all, apparently. Operation Go Home is hosting a Night At The Races at the Rideau Carleton Raceway, and wee need people to buy tickets! So I'm advertising here on my blog - tickets are $50 each, and all the money goes to Operation Go Home, where we try to help homeless kids get off the streets and get jobs and get housing before they spend their entire lives homeless. A great cause, and a great event. April 24th at 5:30.

Your ticket gets you a meal, a betting voucher, a lottery ticket, and there will be CHEZ door prizes and auction items. (All the auction items provided by CHEZ are DVDs from my personal collection of overflow items from my Cynical Cinema reviews, so TV box sets and the like. Some of those will be door prizes as well.) You must be 19 or older to participate in the event, since there will be alcohol served. Call 613-230-4663 and speak to Karine to purchase tickets.

There are also, for you high-rollers, sponsorship opportunities. For $500, you get two meals, and your company's name in the program, which is distributed to all on-track betting patrons, as well as to all off-track betting outlets in the teletheatre network in the area. Your name will be broadcast to all fifteen of those locations announcing your support of Operation Go Home and sponsorship of your race. And, if you like, you can have your picture taken with the winning horse and driver from the race you sponsored.

That's it. That's my plug. 613-230-4663. It's on April 24th (a Friday) at 5:30. Buy tickets, it's a good night for a good cause!
