Looking for a night of fun for a great cause? Look no further than A Night at the Derby, presented by Springville Youth Inc. (SYI).

A Night at the Derby is an audience-participation fundraiser that brings the excitement of thoroughbred racing to all those in attendance. This year, the event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 22, from 6 to 10 p.m. at St. Al’s Parish Hall, at 186 Franklin Street Springville.

Intimidated by the idea of virtual horse racing? Don’t be. You don’t need to know anything about horse racing to participate and have fun. Gather up some friends and simply come and wager on you favorite horse.

The event will include 11 action-packed races, featuring actual high-quality video taped races of real thoroughbreds projected on a large screen, and actual race announcers calling each race. There will be “wagering” on each race – pick your favorite and cheer him to victory!

Each event ticket gets you admission to the event, complimentary beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages, snacks, music and all the excitement of race night.

Purchase tickets online at www.syionline.org, from any SYI board member, or at the door.

Money raised for this event will go toward SYI’s youth programming.
