As part of a joint initiative to benefit two local non-profit organizations, the New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) and the City of Saratoga Springs have just launched a new Saratoga Race Course face mask campaign. These limited edition, Saratoga-branded face masks are now available for preorder, and a portion of proceeds will be donated in equal allotments to the Franklin Community Center and Shelters of Saratoga.
Support the Saratoga Springs Community
Ahead of the summer meet at Saratoga Race Course, NYRA and the City of Saratoga Springs have come together to raise funds for these two non-profit organizations, which provide food, shelter, and other critical resources to the community. The face masks were officially unveiled today outside the Union Avenue gates at the historic racetrack.
Available online at the NYRA Merchandise Shop, the Saratoga-branded, reusable cloth face masks come in a variety pack featuring three different color schemes. One mask is red with a white Saratoga logo, another is white with a red Saratoga logo, and the third is navy blue with a red Saratoga logo.
These masks include a white border, an interior pocket for a replaceable filter, and stretchable ear straps for easy, comfortable wearing. They are intended for personal use only and are not a replacement for medical-grade personal protective equipment.
“We are excited to launch this face mask campaign so that fans can show their support for Saratoga Race Course while benefiting two local organizations,” said NYRA President & CEO Dave O’Rourke in a press release. “We thank Mayor Kelly and the City of Saratoga Springs for their partnership in bringing this charitable program to life, as well as the Franklin Community Center and Shelters of Saratoga for their continued service on behalf of the Saratoga Springs community.”
The three-pack of Saratoga-branded face masks is available for preorder today, and the expected ship date is early to mid July.
