Meadowlands “Toys for Tots” Drive a Success

East Rutherford, NJ – Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment wrapped up its 11th annual Toys for Tots collection drive on Saturday.    

For the past few weeks, employees and customers of both Meadowlands Racetrack and Winners Bayonne OTW donated toys to be given to those children less fortunate.  The collection drive was a resounding success, with over 270 toys donated.   

General Manager Jason Settlemoir was thrilled with the response.   

 “I am extremely pleased with this year’s Toys for Tots collection drive,” said Settlemoir.  “The holiday season is all about family and helping others that are less fortunate.  All of us at the Meadowlands Racetrack are happy that our donations will make the holidays a little brighter for local children in need.”

 Live racing continues this Friday & Saturday at the Meadowlands with 7 pm first post.  On Saturday beginning at 6:30 pm the first 1,000 fans receive a 2016 Meadowlands wall calendar featuring the top horses and drivers from the 2015 Meadowlands Meet.
