Derby Day Fun

The band was playing, the drinks were flowing and the energy was buzzing as 225 guests spent a fantastic afternoon at the Volunteer Center’s 18th annual Derby Day Party. Held at White Beeches Country Club in Haworth, this year's Derby Day party raised more than $26,000 for the Volunteer Center's programs and services in the community.

The event featured silent and live auctions of fabulous items such as a 46" Sony TV, trips, jewelry, and much more. MC Dave Dubin and auctioneer Bill Diana led the festivities and encouraged enthusiastic bidding, and everyone cheered as "Super Saver" won the Run for the Roses.

Former “Most Elegant Hat” winner Holly Wiederecht and Haworth Mayor John DeRienzo served as judges for our annual hat and tie contests. Winner of "Most Elegant Hat" was Vicki Carr and "Most Outrageous Tie" was three-time winner, Anthony Barbara.
