Edwin J. Gregson Foundation to honor Oak Tree Racing Association at The Grand Del Mar

The Edwin J. Gregson Foundation recently announced that it will host a charity fundraising dinner honoring Oak Tree Racing Association for its distinguished role in the success of the California thoroughbred horse racing industry and for its countless charitable contributions to those in need.

This dinner will serve as the 11th fund-raising event for the Edwin J. Gregson Foundation, the proceeds of which will be used for continued development of various educational programs to benefit California’s backstretch workers and their families. These programs, such as scholarship grants, computer literacy classes, on-going English as a Second Language courses, as well as various recreational activities, were part of late thoroughbred horse trainer Eddie Gregson’s vision in helping individuals improve their standard of living and achieve excellence in their lives. Gregson is the famed trainer of Gate del Sol, winner of the Kentucky Derby in 1982.

The members of the Oak Tree Board of Directors will be feted at The Grand Del Mar in San Diego. The dinner will take place on Monday, Aug. 8, and tickets for the event are $250 per person. This annual event has proven to sell out each year, and the Edwin J. Gregson Foundation encourages early purchase of tickets to assure attendance. Please contact Angie Carmona at (626) 447-2339 for further information.
