As we’re looking forward to Knox Derby Day 2023, we wanted to get some photos out and recap last year’s Derby Day. Each year we select some beneficiaries for Knox Derby Day. In 2022, those beneficiaries were Shangri-La Therapeutic Academy of Riding (STAR), East Tennessee Children’s Hospital Volunteer Services, and The Dream Connection. From this event, we were able to disburse $20,000 between the 3 beneficiaries. We are hoping that this will be an even bigger event in 2023 and we will have more information and invitations out for this event very soon!
Following our most successful Knox Derby Day yet, we were able to present 3 checks to very deserving local establishments that are making a difference in children’s lives.
The first check was presented to Shangri-La Therapeutic Academy of Riding (STAR) for $8,000. Then we presented a check to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital Volunteer Services for $8,000. And the finally, we were able to present a third check to The Dream Connection for another $4,000. The brought our funds raised and dispersed for this event to an even $20,000!! Thank you for everyone who participated in making this event a great success!
