DERBY DOWN SOUTH FUNDRAISER POSTPONED UNTIL JUNE
Unfortunately COVID-19 has forced the postponement of the 2020 Kentucky Derby, so we are having to rethink this year’s fundraiser. Since our teams' horses had already left the stables and were on their fundraising backstretch, we don’t want them to spit the bit and break their stride. We are working quickly to pick a new date in June to host an exciting evening of horse racing fun that will allow us to finish the race and bring home the roses for our great non-profits. We hope all of our ticket holders and sponsors will stay in the race with us. FoodFinder, Good Samaritan Health Center and Mosaic Georgia are counting on us now more than ever to support their missions during this trying time. Jockeys, we’re counting on you to shake up and finish strong. We’ll be releasing new event details over the next few weeks. Racegoers, don’t you worry … there will still be mint juleps, great auction items, fashion contests and more. While you're at home social distancing, now’s a great time for you to work on those Derby hats. See you at the races!
