The meal will be served at 7 and Day will share the story of his life as a jockey, as well as his victory over substance abuse and his decision to become involved with the Race Track Chaplaincy of America program. Tickets are on sale at Lanzer’s Printing and Office Supply in downtown Union City Wednesday. Tables for eight are available. Individual tickets sell for $100.
