Derby enthusiasts to ‘Rock the Race’ for annual Ann Storck Center fundraiser
Derby enthusiasts, dressed in festive racing clothing, will gather May 3 at Murphy’s Law Irish Pub at Seminole Hard Rock & Casino in Hollywood for the sixth annual “Rock the Race: A Kentucky Derby Bash.” The event will benefit the programs and services of the Ann Storck Center, which serves children and adults with developmental disabilities.
The day will include live entertainment, mint juleps, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, “best dressed” contests, “best hat” contests and live projections of the 140th race on flat screens throughout the venue.
“’Rock the Race’ is an incredibly festive event, and a vital fundraising component to our agency. The funds raised directly impact the children and adults in our Adult Day Training Program, Early Intervention Preschool, Intermediate Care Facilities and the Therapeutic Art & Music Programs. The Ann Storck Center has helped families for over 30 years and because of the continued support from our community, we can remain a reliable resource to families who need us most,” said Charlotte Mather-Taylor, the center’s CEO.
Named after its founder, Ann Storck, a nurse who opened up her home to care for children with disabilities in the late ’50s, the center has expanded throughout Broward County and now includes multiple group homes.
Tickets cost $50 per person or $85 per couple. For more information, call Patricia Moskol at 954-584-8000 or visit www.rocktherace.org.
