It's no secret that the first Saturday in May is the Kentucky Derby, but you don't have to go to Kentucky to have a good 'ole time! The Volunteer Center is celebrating the "Run for the Roses" at our 19th Annual Derby Day party, on Saturday, May 7 from 3:30-7:00 pm at White Beeches Country Club in Haworth.
Our winning combination will include delectable southern fare, mint juleps, a wine tasting and live music from bluegrass band Risky Business. Trophies will be awarded for the Most Elegant Hat (ladies) and Most Outrageous Tie (gents), so dress your Derby best!
This year, our exciting live and silent auction features a weekend use of a Jaguar XJ, a beautiful string of freshwater pearls from Tiffany & Co., golf foursome at Fiddler's Elbow, a week at vacation homes in the Catskills and Martha’s Vineyard, plus much more. Try your luck at our Winner's Circle, where guests pay $20 and receive a mystery gift of up to $75 in value. The event will culminate in the viewing of the Kentucky Derby - live on TV, of course!
Tickets are $100 per person and on sale now. Call 201-489-9454 for more information or purchase tickets online here. All proceeds benefit the Volunteer Center of Bergen County.
