Things come up rosy for Pine Castle at 5th annual Derby Day event

The horse, Always Dreaming, was not the only winner on Kentucky Derby Day. Pine Castle raised $88,000 during the 5th Annual Run for the Roses Derby Day Soiree at Deerwood Country Club May 6.

After sipping on mint juleps and looking over the silent auction items, donors placed their wagers before the 143rd running of the Kentucky Derby, which was viewed on a large screen in the ballroom. Participants also helped themselves to New York strip sirloin, ham, macaroni and cheese, shrimp and grits, vegetables and desserts at various stations as Katie Jeffries of First Coast News Channel 12 served as mistress of ceremonies.

Kelly and Erik Smith of Nocatee served as honorary chairs. Karen Friedline of Southside and Kim Fishback of St. Nicholas headed up the Silent Auction committee.
