Over 100 people attended The Peters Company First Annual Kentucky Derby Party on May 7th, 2016. The goal of the Derby Party was to raise money and awareness for CHRIS Kids, a charity that helps underprivileged kids. “We believe in supporting the community where we live and work,” said Andy Peters of The Peters Company. “It’s our way of saying thank you to our clients, friends, and neighbors.”
The party incorporated a horse betting station, best-dressed and best hat contest, great food, mint juleps, and fun! When the race was finished, half of the purse was to go to the winner and half would be awarded to CHRIS Kids. However, the winning couple donated all of their earnings to CHRIS Kids. In addition, after Brittany Burnett from CHRIS Kids spoke about the charity, several people donated even more. Overall, the event raised over $1700!
“Lesley and Andy, what a wonderful event at your home on Saturday! It was great to meet (and reconnect) with so many of your clients and neighbors and it seems like everyone had a really great time. Thank you so much for thinking of us and doing this as a fundraiser for CHRIS Kids. I had the chance to meet a lot of people on Saturday and after I spoke, even had some others who came and gave me more cash! The grand total raised was $1,702!!” – Brittany Burnett | Vice President, Development | CHRIS Kids
