Community Hospice and Palliative Care Foundation representative Michelle Cardinal invited local Historic City News subscribers to tip their hats and celebrate the 149th running of the Kentucky Derby at St Augustine’s Tringali Barn tomorrow, Saturday, May 6, 2023, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., with food, fashion, and fun.
Those attending the 11th Annual Derby Run Benefit in St Johns County can enjoy the event’s signature drink, the Mint Julep. Fans of horse racing are encouraged to wear their finest and fanciest Derby attire.
“Our guests will be treated to delicious hors d’oeuvres, festive live music, and a silent auction to benefit the mission of Community Hospice & Palliative Care,” said Jane Boles, Chair of the St Augustine and St Johns County Advisory Council. “We hope you will join us to support a great local cause and “get as close as you can” to the Derby — without going to Kentucky.”
All proceeds from the 11th Annual Derby Run stay in St Augustine and St Johns County to support the end-of-life care needs of the community, a service provided by Community Hospice & Palliative Care.
“As a resident of St Johns County, I am so happy that we are able to present this wonderful event that supports the community,” Boles added.
