HHSA Kentucky Derby

April 20th, 2017

Ladies get your hats and men get your bow ties on because the Kentucky Derby is coming to town!! The HHSA is pleased to announce we are preparing for our 2017 Spring Event on Thursday April 20, 2017 at the Florentine Gardens in Rivervale, NJ. Not only is this a great opportunity to have a night out with your friends but it is a night to come together as a community and make a
difference in our children’s school experience. All the proceeds from the evening benefit the Haworth Public School.

One of the many highlights of the evening is the Horse Racing!! Therefore, at
this time we are looking for
donations for the prize baskets, silent auction, and any items to be placed in baskets. We are hoping that each school family make a donation to the Spring Event. You can get together with other families to make a basket, donate an item or gift certificate. You can solicit a friend or vendor to donate an item, gift certificate, coupon, etc. No donation is too small. We have attached a donation letter to help you solicit to businesses. Please feel free to photocopy or go to our website to print out more.

A second way to help is to find sponsorship for each of the eight horse races. The sponsor will be advertised during the race as well as listed in the event brochure. Another more exciting way to help is to become an owner of one of the 64 horses participating in the race. As an owner you get naming rights of the horse which will be displayed before the race. Plus, win a prize if your horse comes in first. Please see the attached page for pricing.

Donations can be dropped off at the home of Jessica Kolkebeck (53 Osmers Way) or if preferable call 201-693-2121 to arrange to have the item picked up. Please send in all donations by April 3,2017. We will acknowledge the gift in our 2017 event journal which will be distributed at the event and list all the fabulous donations.

Lastly, as many of you know this a huge event to organize and we are currently looking for fresh, energetic volunteers to join the committee or just donate their time the night of the event. No matter how much or how little time you have we need you!! This a great way to make new friends and be part of a team whose goal is to make the evening a success.

Thank you in advance for your consideration. We hope that your can contribute in any way to this amazing event and we certainly hope that you will be able to join us.

Sincerely,
The HHSA Kentucky Derby Committee
