Kentucky Derby Party

Join Us! May 4th at the Blue Grotto

On Saturday May 4, 2019 the Monmouth Park Charity Fund will be hosting its 16th Annual Kentucky Derby Day Celebration at Blu Grotto’s beautiful outdoor garden at the historic Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport, New Jersey. Proceeds from this event provide critically needed funds to over 50 non-profit organizations in Monmouth County delivering vital services relating to health, those at risk in our community, and those identified as in need of special services. 

We are thrilled to be recognizing the following honorees at this year’s Kentucky Derby Day Celebration: Maureen Lloyd for her tireless support and the countless hours she has given to help so many charities, serving as the leader of Monmouth Park Charity Fund for over 20 years, and for being the spirit and fire behind the success of the Kentucky Derby Day Celebration; Ruth Harms for her dynamic advocacy and philanthropic leadership for many local charities; Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno for serving as a trailblazer with passion and dedication to uphold the well-being of our community; and the Barbara Black Family for sustaining the legacy and mission of Monmouth Park Charity Fund and legendary supporters of our community.

We look forward to your participation and showcasing your generosity to an anticipated 400+ guests!
