Benefitting: 5 Points of Life

Join us for An Evening at the Derby presented by Perry Roofing Contractors on Saturday, May 2, 2015 at the Gainesville Country Club.

Experience the southern tradition of watching the Kentucky Derby in true Churchhill Downs fashion and fun. Enjoy great music, delicious food, mint juleps, bourbon tasting, games, hat contest, silent auction and much more at this elegant lawn party. Find your searsucker suit, create a fabulous hat and join us for this one of a kind event. Purchase your tickets individually, or gather your friends and reserve a table for ten.

All proceeds benefit the Five Points of Life Foundation who raises awareness for the five ways to share life with others. The mission is to encourage every eligible donor to give blood, join the marrow registry, talk to their family about organ donation and learn more about cord blood donation. In addition, the foundation creates and teaches a curriculum with education materials and many hands on activities to local schools to educate youth on the science and social responsibility of donation. In educating our youth, the goal is that they will donate when they are eligible and become the Donation Generation.

For more information about how you can support the Five Points of Life Foundation as An Evening at the Derby sponsor, contact Brite Whitaker at 352-224-1728 or bbwhitaker@lifesouth.org.
