18th Annual Day of Thoroughbred Racing

Thank you to all of Villa's friends, family, and supporters who joined the Villa Esperanza Guild at the 18th Annual Day of Thoroughbred Racing on February 27, 2016. The company sublime as everyone enjoyed the atmosphere and camaraderie at Santa Anita Park. We appreciate all of your support and hope to see you next year! The event raised funds to support Villa’s Hjelte-Phillips Speech and Language Center and Residential and Independent Living programs. The Villa Esperanza Guild was formed in 1968 to increase awareness of the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities and we are grateful for all they do for Villa.
