Race Day is coming on June 3… Mouse Races that is! The Tornado Wrestling Foundation will be hosting their 2017 Mouse Races Fundraiser at the Christian County Fairgrounds on Saturday June 3. Doors will open at 6 p.m., with races starting at 7. The event will only be for those 21 and older, and will feature complementary beer, a cash bar, and other games that night.

 

Tornado Wrestling Foundation Treasurer Gerry Mahr says Taylorville wrestling coach Lee Mateer brought the idea to town after seeing its success in neighboring communities.

 

 

Mahr says between each race, there will be other ways for people to enjoy themselves or try their luck.

 

 

Tickets can be purchased in advance for $15, or at the door for $20. Businesses can also sponsor a mouse as well. For more information on tickets or sponsoring a mouse, Mahr says to give him a call at 306-5140.
