Vernon Downs and its horsemen are teaming up to race against hunger.

At least ten horsemen will donate portions of their driving fees to the Food Bank of Central New York during Saturday night's races.

The goal is to raise at least $1,000.

The Food Bank will also have a table set up at the racetrack to collect additional donations.

The event follows another fundraiser in June when Vernon Downs raised more than $65,000 for the Food Bank through proceeds from a Gretchen Wilson concert.
