The Derby Party fundraiser is co-chaired by Jodie Barbara and Sara Werner, Barrington Children's Charities board members. Guests are encouraged to come wearing their most creative Derby attire and hats to participate in the best-dressed and best-hat awards! Ladies should wear footwear appropriate for a barn atmosphere. The event includes unique and delicious food, open bar, live Derby broadcast, live music by Sons of Bildoor, 50/50 raffle and best-dressed awards. Guests are invited to visit Shirley's in Downtown Barrington for the "after-party" event.
Barrington Children's Charities developed, and is fully funding, a program at all eight elementary schools in District 220 for children on the federal free and reduced price meal program. In partnership with Blessings in a Backpack, we will provide these local elementary children in need a backpack full of food for 38 weekends (plus long weekends and holidays) during the school year. For only $100 you can help a child in need eat healthy over the weekends for the entire school year. Sponsor a child TODAY!
