Derby en­thu­si­asts to ‘Rock the Race’ for an­nual Ann Storck Cen­ter fundraiser

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Society Scene - Broward - - In The Know -

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.
