Placing bets and celebrating a victory will be extra easy this year, as the Crockett Foundation’s Derby Days Belmont Stakes Party will be held at Sport of Kings at Gulfstream Park! All of us at South Florida PR Firm Durée & Company are looking forward to the June 6 party for the following reasons:
- The Fashion: Where else do we get to sport our stylish hats? The event’s attire is Derby Chic.
- The Music: This year’s event will feature both a DJ and live performer. We can’t wait for the dance party following the race!
- The Location: If you haven’t been to Sport of Kings, now’s the time! The incredible venue is located in Gulfstream Park, where the peak of the action will be. Plus, the food and drinks are to die for.
- The Raffle Items: Why plan a vacation when you can win one?
- Triple Crown: In case you missed it, there is the possibility of a Triple Crown finish at this year’s race! American Pharoah will have the chance to become horse racing’s 12th Triple Crown champion after his Kentucky Derby and Preakness victories this year. The last Triple Crown winner was in 1978.
- Last, but certainly not least (in fact, the most important reason): Support a great cause.
Money raised will go to the Crockett Foundation’s “School is Cool” program, which focuses on improving literacy among middle school students. Broward County leads the nation in the number of high school dropouts. According to research, many students drop out prior to high school because they cannot read, or because of delinquent behavior resulting from not being able to read. Let’s help the Crockett Foundation keep kids in school!
Individual tickets are priced at $100 and include food, beverages and an unforgettable evening.
