Rotary Club holds their annual Kentucky Derby party

The Rotary Club of Derby-Shelton is holding their Annual Kentucky Derby Party and Auction on Saturday May 7 at Brownson Country Club in Huntington, at 5 P.M.

For over 30 years Rotarians have been hosting the auction fundraiser to support the Derby-Shelton Rotary Foundation scholarship fund. To date the Club has given out over $300,000.  Each year the Club awards over $12,000 in scholarships to Derby and Shelton High School seniors continuing their education.

The Derby-Shelton Rotary Club holds three fundraisers each year, the Shelton Day Festival, Hoptoberfest and an Annual Auction. Monies raised from both events are distributed back to the communities of Derby and Shelton. The success of the Kentucky Derby is vital in helping the Rotary Club continue to provide scholarships to students right here in our own communities.

The event will feature a Buffet Dinner, Cash Bar and Special awards for the Best Hat/Bow Tie.  A Silent Auction will be offered and attendees are watching the Kentucky Derby live on a large screen television.
