The PWS Derby is the annual fundraising party for PWS in Colorado. Taking place on the first Saturday in May, donors enjoy mint juleps and Derby cuisine, watch and bet on the actual race, and use their winnings and cash to bid on prizes at the live and silent auctions. PWS families work together to make the event a success. Our goal is to raise $100,000 to continue supporting the following programs:
Long Term Care (We’re working to establish a PWS adult group living facility in Colorado)
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
RAISE MONEY ONLINE
Create an online fundraising page and get your friends and family to support our cause. All funds raised online can be used towards Derby admission packages. Raise $125 to get free admission. If your page raises $500 you will receive an EXACTA Derby package. But don’t stop there! Raise $2,000 or more and get a table for 10!
Individual admission: $125 per adult | $50 children 13 -20 | $25 children 7-12 | children 6 & under FREE.
All Derby Packages include 2 adults + children 12 & under.
A note for PWS families: The PWS Derby event is designed for donors as our primary fundraiser event for the year. There is unlimited food and drink which might not be the best environment for your Prader- Willi children & adults. PWSACO hosts other PWS-friendly family events including swim parties and educational workshops throughout the year that specifically are designed for our Prader-Willi members and their families.
What can I do with EXTRA PWD’s?pwsaco2020-03-02T22:03:20+00:00
If you are left with PWD’s at the end of the night you can take these home! Unfortunately, they will not be good next year and any un-used PWD’s will not be converted back to USD. All Prader Willi Dollar purchases are considered a donation to PWSACO.
What are Prader Willi Dollars?pwsaco2020-03-02T21:55:43+00:00
YES! Make sure to research the horses in advance. All betting must be done with Prader Willi dollars (PWD). There is a $20 min bet per card and all bets must be made in $5 increments. Odds are paid out based on the odds at the event and will be paid out in PWD after the race.
