Get Your Derby On!
Folks, grab your most festive hat or most outrageous tie and join us on Saturday, May 2nd for the Volunteer Center's 17th Annual Derby Day party! We're serving up a fun, festive afternoon of savory southern food, authentic mint juleps, wine tasting, great music, raffles, auctions and of course, the viewing of the Kentucky Derby - all to benefit the Volunteer Center of Bergen County's programs and services. With President Obama's call to service, the Volunteer Center is experiencing a greater demand for volunteers - and we're seeing more citizens who are inspired to volunteer. With our 42 years of experience, the Volunteer Center is uniquely positioned to respond to these needs. Derby Day is a great way for the people of Bergen County to learn more the Volunteer Center and to support the important work we do in the community. So come on over and see what it's all about! The party will be held at a private garden in Alpine and in the spirit of the Kentucky Derby, awards will be given for the “Most Elegant Hat” for the ladies and “Most Outrageous Tie” for the gentlemen. Tickets are $100 per person. To make reservations or for further information, call (201) 489-9454 or visit www.bergenvolunteers.org and click on the Derby Day icon.
