Our third annual Derby Day event was held Wednesday, May 4 at the After School Matters Gift Shop. The event featured the Hats, Headbands and Beyond program.
Close to 50 guests gathered to enjoy complimentary beverages and hors d’oeuvres while engaging with teen artisans who helped them get race ready with custom Kentucky Derby-style hats.
Once guests selected a hat or a headband, they accessorized them using an assortment of ribbons, flowers and jewels crafted by our teens. The funds raised from hat sales will be used to provide continual support for After School Matters programs and our talented teens.
