For the second year, Gateway is cancelling its traditional Derby Day Fundraiser. This event is always held on the first Saturday in May to celebrate and enjoy the Kentucky Derby “Run for the Roses.” The cancellation comes as a result of the continuing, however, improving COVID-19 pandemic.
It saddens us to miss yet another year of this long-celebrated event, which has become such a favorite tradition each year in Greenbrier and surrounding counties. However, we believe that it is best to be prudent regarding having such a large gathering, while the virus still lingers in our midst.
With the continued successful fight against Covid and the hard and much appreciated work of our health care workers, first responders and volunteers, we feel confident that we will be able to return to our longstanding fundraiser next May, and once again, share this special event with the hundreds of loyal Gateway supporters who turn out for a fun-filled evening of endless food, entertainment, and the ever-so-popular Derby Day Silent Auction.
Be well and we look forward to seeing you all again next year!
