Our 4th Annual “Derby Days” (formerly “Night at the Races”) fundraiser will be held this on Friday, April 21st 2017

Join us for a night of video horse racing, food, drinks, and raffles!

The event will take place at Gaelic Park from 7:00PM-11:00PM.

Cost includes buffet dinner and entertainment. A cash bar will also be available.

There will be six races shown at regular intervals throughout the evening. Betting/Payout windows and programs will also be available.

All proceeds benefit the Oak Forest Park District Fury Lacrosse Program and the Fury Lacrosse Club.

Please show your support for the Fury Lacrosse programs.  We do not have any mandatory fundraisers.  This is our only opportunity to raise money for the program.  There are many ways you can help out:

  1.  Buy a ticket to the event – Come out and have a great time with other Fury parents
  2. Donate or solicit raffle basket items – attached is a letter you can give to local businesses to ask for donations
  3. Sponsor a Race – You can have your business name and information displayed continually throughout the evening for $100
  4. Donate a bottle of booze for our always popular barrel of booze raffle
  5. Help out the night of the event – Give a half hour of you time to sell raffle tickets or help with dinner
  6. Be on the Derby Day committee – Help plan the event
