Derby Day Party

Benefits Saratoga Sponsor-A-Scholar

The Lodge, One Nelson Avenue, Saratoga Springs

May 4, 2019 4:00PM - 8:00PM

Our fourth annual Kentucky Derby Day Party will be held at the Lodge on Nelson Avenue on Saturday, May 4, 2019 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The party will feature large screen TVs to watch the race, on-site wagering and great food and drink, including an open bar.

No speeches, auctions, raffle tickets or solicitations. Just a great time.

The event has sold out for the past 3 years with over 300 people attending. Letters seeking sponsors and honorary committee members have been mailed. If tickets are left after the sponsors and honorary committee response, they will go on-sale via EVENTBRITE on March 15.

"We only have one fund raising event per year and we try to make it as enjoyable as possible for our sponsors and guests" said SSAS Volunteer Executive Director Jim LaVigne. "Great food, entertainment and drink; a casual atmosphere and no speeches or solicitations at the event allows everyone to have an enjoyable afternoon leading up to the race which is shown on multiple large screens".

Our Mission

Saratoga Sponsor A Scholar is a ten-year-old nonprofit corporation formed by local residents, Skidmore College, the Saratoga Springs High School and the Saratoga Mentoring Program.  Its purpose is to assist fiscally disadvantaged students in Saratoga Springs who are academically capable of achieving their dream of attending college but who do not have the same opportunities as other students.

Saratoga Sponsor-A-Scholar is dedicated to the philosophy that every student showing academic motivation and potential should have the opportunity to finish high school and continue on to college. For many financially disadvantaged students, this goal would be beyond their reach without the support and guidance of caring adults. Saratoga Sponsor-A-Scholar provides qualified students with mentors and college preparatory help during high school and financial assistance during college.
