CARMAcares Fundraiser

The California Retirement Management Account (CARMA), a nonprofit dedicated to funding Thoroughbred aftercare, thanks the generous guests of its first ever GoodCARMA charity soiree – held on July 23, 2017. More than 120 supporters enjoyed the gourmet food, locale and hospitality provided by CARMA advisory board member and proprietor The Pamplemousse Grille, Jeffrey Strauss. The evening was a marvelous celebration of the strides made in Thoroughbred aftercare and the efforts of Del Mar Thoroughbred Club CEO Joe Harper. As a token of appreciation, CARMA presented Mr. Harper with a stunning Erica Nordean original painting “Listen”. GoodCARMA raised nearly $60,000 to help the organization provide financial aid to more than 20 nonprofits which rehabilitate, retrain and rehome off-track-thoroughbreds who raced in California.
