LPCTV’s 5th Annual Kentucky Derby Gala
Saturday, May 7 at Willie Dunn’s Grille at Okemo Valley Golf Course
March 23, 2016 (Ludlow, Vermont) -- LPCTV is holding its fifth “Kentucky Derby Gala – A Night at the Races” fundraising event on Saturday, May 7th at Willie Dunn’s Grill at the Okemo Valley Golf Course in Ludlow from 5:00pm to 8:30pm. The event has become the primary annual fundraiser for the local community access television station.
The event will feature food and entertainment which is included in the per person ticket price of $30. Entertainment will include several locally sponsored “horse races” with charity betting, a viewing of the Kentucky Derby live on television, a silent auction, and other activities.
This event is made possible by the Okemo Mountain Resort, which is hosting the event and providing the dinner, as well as the “Circle of Roses” race sponsors. This year’s sponsors include Stemwinder / Wine & Cheese Depot, George B. Tucker, Inc., The Book Nook, Vermont Properties & Development, and Jim & Anita Alic. A limited number of additional “Circle of Roses” sponsorships are still available.
Local businesses and individuals are invited to consider race horse “sponsorships”. For $50 per horse, each sponsor names their own horse, which is printed in the event program. From now until April 15th, LPCTV is offering a 10% discount package of one horse sponsorship and two tickets to the event for $100. One winner from each race will receive a prize donated by local merchants.
Please contact Patrick Cody at LPCTV by calling 228-8808 or emailing email@example.com to make prize donations, to sponsor horses, and to purchase advance tickets for the Kentucky Derby Gala. Tickets will also be available for purchase at LPCTV, The Book Nook, and the Wine & Cheese Depot.
