Next Thursday on May 4, 2017, some of our agents will be participating in the Women’s Council of Realtors Kentucky Derby fundraising event at Eagle Eye Banquet Center. Portions of the proceeds will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Lansing and also the Women’s Council of Realtors of Lansing.
CBHB will be one of the sponsors for the race, and our East Lansing office manager/agent Jim Kost will be a jockey participating in the fun! Attendees can bid on the races while the jockeys make their way around the track on classic stick horses. With the purchase of a ticket, you will receive $10 of play money for the races. Activities begin promptly at 6 pm.
Guests will be dressed to impress in derby-styled clothing. For $45 per person you can enjoy a full dinner including chicken with red potatoes, asparagus, salad, and dessert. There will also be a live DJ and MC, along with a derby hat contest and live and silent auctions from Bill Sheridan of Sheridan Auctions.
Our agent Mary Ellen Cole is the Co-Chair of the Women’s Council of Realtors of Lansing. In addition, our East Lansing agent Amie Brown is an event chair for the derby, and is very excited to help with this fundraiser. “It’s really just a fun, fast-paced event,” she said.
With over 100 people there, we hope you’ll be one of them! To purchase tickets for the derby, you can visit the Women’s Council of Realtors of Lansing website here. With questions or concerns, please contact Amie Brown at (517) 202-5534.
