Derby Day fundraiser takes aim at tetanus

-A A +A

The Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos is hosting a Kentucky Derby Party on Saturday, May 4 from 2:30-5:30 p.m. at the Dixie Girl Restaurant on Central Avenue. 

The event, which is co-sponsored by the Los Alamos Medical Center, is a benefit for “Project Eliminate,” a Kiwanis International-UNICEF effort to wipe out maternal and neonatal tetanus worldwide. 

Kentucky Derby Party Chair Linda Daly says, “Put on your best Derby attire, grab a Daily Racing Form and join us for an afternoon at Churchill Downs for the 139th Run for the Roses!” 

Tickets are $50 per person and include a mint julep and abundant hors d’oeuvres. Daly encourages ladies to wear a hat for the “Derby Hat” contest. Also included: music, big screens TVs for optimum live viewing of the Derby, and a raffle drawing for a framed and signed print by Kimber Wallwork-Heineman. 

There also will be 50/50 betting on the big race. Party-goers can purchase tickets to put on their favorite horse. If your horse wins, the pot is split among ticket holders, while 50 percent is donated to Project Eliminate.
