Karaoke for a cause

It’s a great slogan: “Disc Jockeys play songs. Real jockeys sing them.”

The promotion is for “Riders Up!”, scheduled for the Keeneland Entertainment Center outside Lexington, Kentucky, on Friday, April 17. Top jockeys will raise their voices—as well as some genuine applause and perhaps a few guffaws—in a performance to benefit the Permanently Disabled Jockeys’ Fund.

Keeneland and the Jockeys’ Guild are partnering on the fundraiser, which features a buffet and the evening’s entertainment for $50 admission. For more information, or to obtain tickets, go to the guild’s website: http://www.jockeysguild.com/riders_up.html.
