While we have rescheduled our annual event to align with the new date of the actual running of the Kentucky Derby, and we plan to enjoy our traditional hat contest and other festivities, our committee has decided to shift our honoree focus to recognize those heroes among us, in our communities,  who have been the helpers during this unprecedented time in our history.    We are working on the details and they will be posted soon!

The Kentucky Derby is not only the “social event of the season” but is the signature fundraiser for Monmouth Park Charity for the grants we give to local charitable organizations.  They will need our assistance now more than ever and for that we deeply appreciate our supporters.

By raising and distributing these funds we allow agencies to focus on the work they do to help those in need in Monmouth County. Thank YOU for making this possible.

It is with hope in our hearts for global health and healing

With gratitude for all of our supporters

With anticipation for a reason to celebrate life and have fun
