EAS­TON — Now in its fourth year, CASA of the MidShore’s Off to the Races will be held Satur­day, May 21. This an­nual event raises money for CASA’s work with chil­dren who are un­der court pro­tec­tion in Tal­bot, Dorch­ester, Queen Anne’s and Kent coun­ties be­cause of abuse, ne­glect or aban­don­ment.

CASA’s sig­na­ture Preak­ness Stakes party, tak­ing place at Hem­mer­s­ley Farm, owned by the evening’s hosts Bill Daven­port and Bruce Wilt­sie, prom­ises spe­cialty cock­tails, a buf­fet by Gourmet by the Bay, con­tests, live swing music and danc­ing, and the run­ning of the 141st Preak­ness Stakes races live on large screens.

CASA board mem­ber Mary Lou McAl­lis­ter and board mem­ber emer­i­tus Bruce Wilt­sie are the evening’s chair­men. Along with their com­mit­tee, McAl­lis­ter and Wilt­sie are plan­ning the ca­su­ally el­e­gant evening, to be held un­der a tent on the banks of the Miles River, that will in­clude Best Lady’s Hat and Best Dressed Gen- tle­man con­tests.
