Looking for a fun way to support youth sports and other programs? Look no further than “A Night at the Derby,” sponsored by Springville Youth Inc. (SYI), on Saturday, Sept. 20.
The event, which takes place from 6:00 – 10:30 p.m., is a unique fundraiser and social event that uses thoroughbred horse races instead of a traditional raffle to determine the winning “number.” Races are up-to-date productions shot with five cameras. Each race features commentary by professional race track announcers and shows the horses parading to the post, loading in the gate, split screen close-ups, horses in the lead graphics, the tote board results, the winning horse in the winner’s circle, slow motion photo finish replays, plus a full graphic and commentary announcing the results of each race.
All races will be projected on a state-of-the-art video projection system to give everyone the feeling that they are at the derby.
There will be a total of 10 races with 10 horses in each race. Prizes are determined by the number of participants and how many raffle tickets are purchased for each horse.
Proceeds from “A Night at the Derby” benefit SYI, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that provides recreation services for the residents of Springville and surrounding towns.
The event will take place at the Springville Volunteer Fire Department, 405 W. Main St. in Springville.
Tickets are $20 and include soda and food. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.
To purchase tickets, or for more information, visit www.syionline.org.
Tickets will also be available at the door.
Don’t miss out on a fantastic 21 and over event for a great cause! Mark your calendars for Sept. 20 and gather up some friends for “A Night at the Derby”!
