Furniture Bank Bed Race

May 6, 2017

THANK YOU for helping to raise more than $27,000 to help provide furniture to more than 100 families at the Furniture Bank!


Congratulations to our 2017 fundraising winners:

Highest Individual Fundraiser: Dom Ollhoff raised $1,210

Highest Fundraising Team: Big Lots Div 5 team of Nick Drake, Nicole Kella, Brett Amos, Michelangelo Coletta, Kyle Landers, Scott Schussler raised $1,686

Thank you to all of our great volunteers who helped make the event a success this year- espcially to our steering committee of Larry Beal, Bill Chan, Jaimie Selwa, John Snoble, Jean O'Keffe and Sandy Vidosh. Also thank you to the Furniture Bank staff who worked the event and participated as racers in the event. We couldn't have pulled off this year's event without you!

Pictures from the event are available here

Stay tuned for information about the 2018 race and start planning your costumes and bed themes!

The 2017 Bed Race is located in the employee parking lot behind the casino.

Race schedules are available here.

All it takes is 5 people, 4 wheels, 1 twin bed and a little imagination. Get a bed (or rent one from us), decorate it and dress in family friendly costumes- then race at Hollywood Casino in the employee parking lot.

Registration is $35 per person-a total of $175 per team through Sunday, April 23rd at Midnight. Sign up your team with at least one racer to secure your team's spot in this year's race!

Registration Directions are available here.

The best part is your participation helps us turn empty houses into homes by helping to raise money for the Furniture Bank. Did you know that it would cost over $1,000 to fully furnish a home second-hand? For families living in poverty, that cost is often out of reach. The Furniture Bank helps close the gap for families in need in central Ohio.

Your participation helps us keep people from sleeping on the floor- so sign up a team, make a donation or become an event sponsor today!
