The Kentucky Derby and local education will go hand in hand this Saturday for a first time event for one DeWitt County group.
The Clinton Community Educational Foundation, CCEF, will host a first of its kind event locally, and they're calling Derby Day. Eileen Carter with the CCEF explains they are welcoming the community out for a day of fun, food and the excitement of the Kentucky Derby at the Clinton Country Club.
Along with a silent and live auction, Carter indicates you'll also be able to pick three horses that are in the race, and the winners will share a pot of money.
Carter says the Derby Day fundraiser is a change of pace for the CCEF as they seek new ways to generate revenue and help out students and faculty of the Clinton School district.
For further information on Derby Day at the Clinton Country Club Saturday, you can contact Carter at 217-935-3892 or Ruth Lowers at 217-935-8192.
