For the second year in a row, the Ann Storck Center  and the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino throw Rock the Race-A Kentucky Derby Bash.  This is as close as South Florida gets to an authentic Derby Bash. Socialites show up in "Derby" gear, complete with gorgeous hats to match.  What a great way to have fun and the proceeds will benefit ASC.

The event happens tomorrow at Seminole Paradise at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood.  Tickets are still available for this fun event.  Included in the ticket price are complimentary mint juleps (YUMMY!!), hors d'oeuvres, a silent auction, a Derby hat contest, and other pre-race activities.  You'll then watch the Derby live from Kentucky on the big screen.  They'll also be a one of a kind Derby Hat Fashion Show, put on by fashion design students at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale.  You can see pictures from last year's event here.

The Ann Storck Center is one of South Florida's premier human service organizations, serving the needs of adults and children with severe and multiple developmental disabilities.

For tickets to the event, please contact April Kirk, Director of Development at 954-584-8000x349 or  Tickets will also be sold at the door.  Tickets are $50 pp.
