A Message from the Gilroy Foundation Executive Director, Donna Pray

The Derby attire was out in full force on October 7 for “Run for the Roses”!

An enormous “THANK YOU” goes out to our event co-chairs, Matt Titus and Rachel Traylor. They, along with their fabulous committee and the Foundation’s event coordinator, transformed Gilroy Gardens’ Event Pavilion into a classic Derby party, with mint juleps flowing along with our local award-winning wines. And, our guests certainly got into the spirit with Derby attire. Fabulous hats and bow ties seemed to be everywhere. Guest auctioneer, Jayson Stebbins, led lively and fun auctions and raffles!

We appreciate our Sponsors, our Donors, and our Bidders for making this year’s Day in the Country another success!

"Give Where You Live."
