#var:page_name# cover

The first annual “Down Home Derby” fundraiser is the only Kentucky Derby fundraising event in the area. The event is scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 5th, 2018, the date of the Kentucky Derby, on the beautiful grounds of the River Forest Country Club.

Our event will celebrate the annual Run for the Roses with Southern style appetizers, cash bar, horse photo station, friendly “wagers”, raffles, a silent auction – and the Kentucky Derby, of course - all to benefit Habitat for Humanity Allegheny Valley. Guests will enjoy the Southern ambiance of the event. Ladies may wear their finest hats and gents their finest bow ties!

Proceeds from Down Home Derby will support the work of Habitat for Humanity Allegheny Valley – working in partnership with people in need to build and renovate simple, decent, affordable housing.
