May 6th Board of The Future of The NM Philharmonic will be hosting a Derby party at the Gertrude Zachary Castle in the heart of downtown Albuquerque. It all starts when you arrive at the castle and receive a mint julep or a glass of champagne to kick off the afternoon. We will be watching the race and all of the excitement on a 16 foot giant screen in the courtyard!
Your ticket will include a chance to bet on the horse of your choice! Prizes for first, second and third place will be raffled off as the winners of the race are revealed. In addition to the derby, your ticket will buy you 300 of "funny money" that can be used throughout the afternoon at the various casino games set up throughout the castle. Black Jack, Craps, Roulette...pick your fancy!
There will be prizes for the high dollar winner at the end of the evening so don't be afraid to shoot the moon! Prizes for best hat and best dressed will also be given out according to the roar of the crowd, so dress to impress! This is going to be AMAZING! The "Board of the Future" is taking care of the full costs for this evening.
We are asking you to buy a 100 ticket and 100% of the ticket sales will go to the Holman's Foundation for Autism. This group will use the money to continue investing in the lives of our children who need it the most. The space is limited so please let us know if you can make it as soon as possible.
