The band was playing, the drinks were flowing and the energy was buzzing as well over 200 guests spent a fantastic afternoon at the Volunteer Center’s 19th annual Derby Day Party. Held at White Beeches Country Club in Haworth, this year's Derby Day Party raised more than $35,000 for the Volunteer Center's programs and services in the community.

A great Day at the Derby
Highlights were silent and live auctions of fabulous items such as a 46" 3D Sharp TV, trips, Coach bag, Tiffany pearls and much more. MC Damian Albergo and auctioneer Bill Diana led the festivities and encouraged enthusiastic bidding, and everyone cheered as "Animal Kingdom" came from behind to win the Run for the Roses.
Judge for the “Most Elegant Hat” contest was VC Board member, Susan Russ and for the “Most Outrageous Tie” contest was Haworth Mayor John DeRienzo. Winner of "Most Elegant Hat" was Carol Nastos and of "Most Outrageous Tie" was Rashawn Gerald.
