DERBY DAY PARTY IS A WINNER, RAISES $130,000 FOR SSAS

A big THANK YOU to the sold out crowd who attended our Derby Day fundraiser at The Lodge. We hope you had a good time, and will join us again next year!

The event raised $130,000 and was our most successful fundraiser EVER! We couldn't have done it without the generosity of some very special donors. Gary and Nancy Dicresce and Saratoga Eagle underwrote the food and beverages for the day, and Saratoga Casino and Raceway underwrote the valet parking costs, which allows us to use every dollar raised for our programs.

For a full list of Sponsors and Donors, click on Derby Party on the sidebar of the SSAS home page.

 

******************************************

SSAS would like to acknowledge a very special gift of $2,000 given to us by Joan G. de Pontet and Joseph Handler of Washington D.C. after they read about our charity on line. The gift was in memory of their son, Alan Glade.
