      EVENT DETAILS
      DeKalb Music Boosters' 3rd Annual Derby Night Hats Horses & Harmony fundraiser

      The derby event will have simulated horse races with great prizes, a silent auction and a cash bar and. As well, we will be inducting our Maestro and Muse Award winners into the Dekalb Music Hall of Fame.  For those of you that aren’t familiar with a derby event, we thought we would share a little more detail on how the derby portion of the evening works. It’s a guest participation game played with filmed horse racing shown on a giant video screen. It starts off as you watch the horses parade to the gate, and then our emcee will announce to place your bets. In addition to all of the other festivities, your entrance ticket gets you racing tickets to allow you to bet on one horse in each of the races. You will have the opportunity to purchase additional race tickets to bet on multiple horses in each race or to bet multiple times on the same horse in each race in order to increase your chances of winning a prize. After you pick the horse(s) you want to win in the race by placing your racing ticket(s) in the bucket for the respective horse(s), the race will start. We find that during the race itself, guests really enjoy cheering for their favorite horse. Once the race is over, our emcee will announce the winning horse, and then a ticket will be pulled from the winning horse’s bucket, and the holder of that ticket wins a prize. That winning ticket along with all of the other tickets in the winning horse’s bucket will be placed in a grand prize bucket. This will repeat for the balance of the races. At the end of the night, a ticket is drawn from the grand prize bucket and the holder of that ticket will take home the grand prize.
