Bets for Books Pool Party

Hawthorne is hosting a special edition of our popular pool party to benefit Bernie’s Book Bank.  We’re giving a $2000 bankroll to betting experts Jim Miller and Emily Gullikson on one of the biggest racing days of the summer: Travers Stakes Day at Saratoga!  Half the profits from their wagers will go to Bernie’s Book Bank who has provided over 24 million books to Chicagoland families.


Want to join the fun and raise more money for Bernie’s?  Make a $35 donation to join the pool party with complimentary food, race program and a share of half the pool profits.  Bonus: bring a new or gently used kids book (age appropriate for infants to 6th graders) and get a free $2 bet.
