Enjoy great pasta of every description and place play-money bets on your favorite horses at our ‘PASTA & PONIES 2018’ family night.
It’s a night at the races — with great food! Pasta & Ponies 2018 is a fresh take on Together We Cope’s annual pasta dinner fundraiser.

This year the event is Wednesday, Oct. 17 at Palos Country Club, 13100 Southwest Highway in Orland Park, and features a fabulous buffet dinner with many new menu items. We’ll also have the popular videotaped horse races with “fun money” betting, where winnings are used to enter raffles for great prizes. Dinner tickets are $35 until Oct. 3 (or $45 at the door) for adults, and $10 until Oct. 3 (or, $15 at the door) for children 4-12. Children 3 and under have free admission. Cost includes one drink ticket and unlimited sodas. Reservations can be made with Kathy Rogge at 708-263-0302 ext. 6101.
