The Run for the Roses comes to Bergen County every year with the Volunteer Center of Bergen County's 23rd Annual Derby Day Party. This legendary fundraising event is scheduled for Saturday, May 2nd Apple Ridge Country Club, 269 East Crescent Avenue, Mahwah, NJ.
Derby Day features a winning combination of savory southern food, authentic mint juleps, wine tasting, great live music from The Stuff Brothers, cigar rolling from Maxum Cigars, and of course, the viewing of the Kentucky Derby! The party runs from 3:30 to 7:30 pm and features a silent and live auction in which guests can bid on unique items such as fantastic experiences, gift certificates, vacations, tickets to events and more. Guests are encouraged to dress in festive Derby-inspired attire as there will be a Most Elegant Hat contest for the ladies and a Most Outrageous Tie contest for the gentlemen.
Guests can also view photos from last year’s Derby Day and purchase tickets, which are $100 per person or purchase a table of 12 for $1,000 – great value! For more information call 201-489-9454.
Sponsors of the Volunteer Center’s Derby Day party include: Synetek Solutions, Inserra Supermarkets, Sharp Electronics, United Water, BC the Magazine, Oritani Bank Charitable Foundation, as well as many individual donors of the Volunteer Center of Bergen County.
