We Raced to Raise Scholarships, and Won!

The D4TS Derby was a night to remember! We had a galloping good time with everyone who attended. Thanks to your participation, our raffle item contributors, horse owners, and wonderful sponsors, we raised enough money to provide three college scholarships! We’d say that sounds like a clear winner of any race.

The food catered by Zorba’s Taverna, Chili’s Boca Raton, and Dunkin’ Donuts was delectable, and the races were brimming with excitement. Once everyone got the hang of guessing the winning horses, they were racing to the ticket booths almost as fast as the derby collage 1video horses were racing down the track. From the winning video horse owners to the race and raffle prize winners, everyone had a chance to be a winner, even the “losers” had their chance to win! Our Derby Hat photo shows how awesome everyone looked that night.

Thank you again to our race sponsors Shavell & Company, PA, the Mellon Patch Inn, Key Tech-Squad, Brenner Real Estate Group, Dignity Memorial and Sunburst Health Solutions! And of course, thank you to our amazing army of volunteers who helped us make it a smooth race down the track to derby collage 2benefit our students with Tourettes.
