The Birch Run Rotary Club 8th Annual Run for the Roses Kentucky Derby Party was a successful event. Held under the Big Tent at The Bus Stop Paddock & Grille in Birch Run on Saturday, May 4, 2024, the stick horse races provided fun and competitive entertainment leading up to the live coverage of the 2-minute Kentucky Derby race. This annual social event offers a fun and friendly atmosphere to support our major fundraiser. We thank our sponsors, horse entries, volunteers and everyone who gave in some way to contribute to the success of this event. All funds raised are used for Rotary projects such as education scholarships to high school seniors, aid to families in need, the 4th of July Parade, and other community service projects and events.
