The Far Hills Race Meeting, the annual steeplechase event that raises money to support local health care initiatives, will be held on its usual day, the third Saturday in October, this year. The 2019 event falls on Oct. 19.
Guy Torsilieri, the longtime chairman of the event, said this year will mark the first race of a three-year arrangement to raise money for five charities connected to nearby RWJ University Hospital Somerset:
- The Arc of Somerset County;
- Community in Crisis;
- The Cancer Support Community;
- Bonnie Brae; and
- Life Camp.
Peapack-Gladstone Bank and Open Road Auto Group are the lead sponsors for this year’s meeting, the 99th edition of the event.
