The Kentucky Derby won’t be run until May 7, 2022, but the annual Dinner at the Derby fundraiser benefiting Youth Connection, Boys & Girls Clubs of Kern County, and Bakersfield North Rotary Foundation will be off to the races on April 22, 2022. The races are pre-recorded with the winners of each of the 12 races entered into a drawing for the grand prize. There’s only one big winner but wagering on the races adds to the excitement. The gambling is aboveboard with winners being paid in tickets for the raffle, which consists of baskets donated by board members of Youth Connection. The buffet dinner is Southern-themed. The parade of hats has guests don festive headwear in honor of “race day.” This fabulous event also includes a live and silent auction.
$150 Single ticket (includes Naming/Ownership of 1 Virtual Racehorse) OR $250 Couple’s ticket (includes Naming/Ownership of 1 Virtual Racehorse)
