Help the Family Literacy Center in Lapeer raise funds to support local literacy programs. Friday (10/20) night it’s the 18th annual Camel Races at the Lapeer Center Building . You won’t be seeing live camels inside the Center Building. What you will see are wooden camels creatively decorated by area sponsors “race” to the toss of the big, fuzzy dice. Guests bet on their favorites and can win at the races, raffles and door prizes.

Tickets are just $25 each and include dinner and snacks. BYOB. Call 810-664-2737. No tickets at the door. Must be purchased in advance. More information can be found on the Family Literacy Center facebook page.
