The 4th Annual Kentucky Derby party Saturday (May 6) was a blast for everyone who gathered to watch the 143rd Run for the Roses at Angel Fire Resort Country Club’s Elements restaurant.
“It was another successful event,” said Bret Wier, president of Angel Fire Rotary. “We had over 100 people Saturday and everybody had a good time. The speech that [breast cancer survivor] Jamie Greene gave was very moving.”
Angel Fire Rotary celebrates the Kentucky Derby over three-days with a Trifecta Party on Friday, Saturday’s Derby day viewing with dinner and Sunday Brunch — to raise money for the Enchanted Circle Gateway Museum in Eagle Nest, Casting for Recovery, which helps with the rehabilitation of breast cancer patients, and the National Veterans Wellness & Healing Center Angel Fire.
“It was a great time and the best news is, the money’s going to go to help three different charitable organizations,” Wier said.
