Bowties and Belles Information!!

The countdown has begun! In just a few short weeks, we will be celebrating Bowties and Belles and the Kentucky Derby. Bowties and Belles is shaping up to be a great event again this year. The Kate Moran Band will be providing music throughout the day and we have an exciting silent auction, Top Gun Flight Day Raffle, betting on your favorite horse and of course, the Derby's signature drink, the Mint Julep. Join us on Saturday, May 4th from 4:00 - 7:30 pm at Belle Haven Country Club for what we know will be a great day at the Races!

Buy your tickets before they are gone!

We have a few Day of Duty spots to fill during Bowties & Belles on Saturday May 4th, and would be so thrilled if you could sign up to help our last event of the year! Our wonderful volunteers are critical to the success of our events! Just a reminder that to remain a member in good standing, all Junior Friends must complete a Day of Duty shift during one of our Spring events.

Here is the link to Volunteer Spot:

Kiskadee is talking Derby to us! Our always supportive friends are once again showing they care by offering an incredible promotion benefitting the Campagna Center. Shop between now and May 3rd, mention Bowties & Belles/Junior Friends and receive 15% off your purchase of shoes and apparel (full price and in stock merchandise). The best part, Kiskadee will donate an additional 15% of your purchase of shoes and apparel back to the Campagna Center. Swoop in before the bird flies from the nest!
