7th Annual Derby for Dollars

May 5 from 6:00pm - 10:00pm

7th Annual Derby for Dollars

This year's Derby for Dollars will raise critical dollars for Emergency Assistance Services in Summit County.

Catholic Charities Summit County invites you to join us on Friday, May 5 from 6-10 pm for our 7th Annual Derby for Dollars, which features this year's Hall of Honor! The location is Portage Country Club (240 N Portage Path, Akron, OH 44303). Cocktail hour begins at 6 pm and dinner will be served around 7:15 pm. The program will follow dinner.

Selection for the Hall of Honor is the highest recognition bestowed upon volunteers and staff. Induction into the Hall of Honor connects us to our past, respects the important contributions of our founders, and continues to recognize the significant leadership which has shaped the direction of our agency since 1912. The last Hall of Honor induction ceremony was in November 2017. This year’s inductees are Philip Maynard (Posthumous), Gail Angeletti, David Bedell, Linda Nuosci & Deacon William Yoho. *Click on inductee name to learn more.

This event will be the night before the Kentucky Derby so attendees will be encouraged to wear their finest Run for the Roses attire. It will be a fun, festive and heartwarming evening to support a wonderful cause.

Thanks to our incredible supporters and sponsors, we have netted over $125,000 since the event began in 2016. We hope to raise funds once again this year in support of our Emergency Assistance Services here in Summit County to help the poor and most vulnerable.

Tickets - SOLD OUT | $100 Each OR $175 per Couple | $875 per Table (10 Seats)
