SARATOGA SPRINGS — Socialite Mary Lou Whitney’s declining health in recent years has forced her to scale back some of her traditional racing season events. For example, her annual Travers Celebration benefit gala this year has morphed into a cocktail reception.
The event, scheduled for Thursday, August 25, two days before the Saratoga Race Course’s most famous race of the summer, this year will be called “Moonlight Over Saratoga,” a cocktail reception instead of the formal dinners of the past.
Tickets are $175 per person — $125 for those under age 30. They are available by calling (518) 383-6183 or by going online.
