“Run for the Roses” Kentucky Derby Party to benefit Volunteers in Medicine Clinic Hilton Head Island


Volunteers in Medicine Clinic Hilton Head Island announces a special “Run for the Roses” Kentucky Derby Party from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on May 4 to be held at Poseidon Rooftop Bar in Shelter Cove.  The event is sponsored by the SERG Restaurant Group and all proceeds will benefit the Volunteers in Medicine Dental Clinic.  Last year the dental clinic had 6,000 scheduled dental visits, saw a dramatic increase in the number of daily emergency walk-ins and expanded the denture program with valued services exceeding $98,000.  Because dental pain and disease is the number one reason adults miss work and children miss school, it is critical that VIM HHI be able to meet the needs of our dental patients.

The Kentucky Derby Party will be an exciting evening with “Funny Money” and an “Odds Board” as participants enter the track through the rows of betting windows. The action includes 8 video horse races throughout the evening and at the end of the races, “funny money” is exchanged for raffle tickets and everyone has a chance to win outstanding prizes.  Of course, the famous Kentucky Derby race will also be shown on the big screen and prizes will be awarded for Best Hat and Best Attire.  Hors d’oeuvres and Mint Juleps will be served throughout the evening as well as all the festive food and drinks you would expect at the Kentucky Derby. Tickets are available for $100. Tickets may be purchased at vimclinic.org (click on Events), by calling VIM’s Development Office at (843) 689-6612 or by e-mailing development@vimclinic.org.
