The community will gather to support three outstanding local charities in honour of the late Jan R. Cook at this one-of-a-kind Niagara event.All net proceeds will be donated to support our three local charities.
Proud to be a part of the Niagara community since 1898, Family and Children’s Services is among Niagara’s largest child and family serving organizations. As a multi-service organization, we offer a wide range of programs that protect children, strengthen families and help youth and adults to be the best they can be.
Niagara Children’s Centre is recognized throughout the Niagara Region as the provider of rehabilitation and support services to children and youth with physical, developmental and communicative delays and disabilities. The family centred programs aim at helping each child achieve their own unique potential so that they can participate in all activities at home, school and in the community.
Community Care has been serving St. Catharines since 1919. The majority of funding comes from the community at large. With 21 programs and services that address the needs of the most vulnerable, we compassionately provide vital services and assistance to individuals and families that meet their basic needs and help bridge their journey to self-sufficiency.
One of the highlights of the event will be the live fashion show with a twist - YOU are the stars of the show! And we have some exciting prizes for the winners in the following categories:
Judges will be looking for best derby style - bright colours, coordinated designs, and overall fun & creativity.
Derby Day is just as much about what you wear as it is about the races. Imagine that you are walking up to Millionaire’s Row in the beautiful state of Kentucky. This is a showcase of the finest spring fashions, and hats are always in style!
Ladies typically wear spring dresses, pastel-colored suits, or bold separates that coordinate with their Derby headwear and accessories. The Kentucky Derby is a chance for every female to express her inner Southern Belle so take note and don't hold back when planning your derby outfit!
Gentlemen, this event provides a splendid excuse to get just as dressed up and decked-out as the ladies! The modern Derby man possesses an unparalleled colour palette. Sun-drenched, tropical colors in bold stripes or busy plaid and bright pastels steal the limelight. If a polished look is more your style, you can never go wrong with a classic navy or seersucker blazer.
