Anne Arundel County's eight Rotary clubs are looking for sponsors for a mock video horse race, Rotary Raises Stakes for Charity, to be held April 20 at Laurel Park.

Proceeds from the event will go toward the purchase of a dental van that will visit preschools, day care centers, senior centers, assisted living and elder care facilities, and homes in the county to provide dental care for people who lack access to such services. The county Health Department will supply dental staff and supplies and will maintain the vehicle.

Entertainment and food will be provided.
