Spearheaded by St. Anne Conference Member Jim Austing, "A Night at the Races" started in August 2003 as a fundraiser for the Midlothian Thrift Store (re-opened in Orland Park in 2015) and participating conferences. Since that first year, more than $25,000 has been raised. 

"Coordinating this event has been one of the best decisions I've ever made because this is one of the most fun projects I have ever undertaken in my whole life," said Austing.
