Run For The Roses Live Kentucky Derby Event

Rockingham County, NC

We are back, live and in-person for the 13th Annual Run for the Roses Kentucky Derby Event on Saturday, May 7, 2022 at the Wright Memorial Event Center, 184 Slaydon Rd., Eden, NC. We are very excited to see everyone again. Our host and hostess for the evening will be Neville and Mel Hall.

Help Incorporated: Center Against Violence is a 501 (c) 3 serving victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and elder abuse in Rockingham County. All proceeds from this event to benefit the Help Incorporated SquareOne building fund. 

There will be appetizers, dinner, drinks, cash bar, dancing to the Tyler Millard band, live horse games, live auction with Bobby Wray Auctions, and of course, we will watch the Kentucky Derby live at 6:57, the most exciting 2 minutes in sports! There will be awards for best-dressed male, female and couple. So, get your hat and outfits ready! Each ticket holder will receive a souvenir wine glass and a bidding paddle.
