No matter the Kentucky Derby winner, the real winners of the Gateway Children’s Charity 10th Annual Derby Day Party were the young children of St. Louis. The GCC makes high-impact and tangible investments in early childhood programs supporting children in underserved communities. This year $160,000 dollars was raised by some 150 guests to the tent at the Boathouse in Forest Park. Guests came dressed in derby duds and enjoyed live and silent auction items, hors d’oeuvres and mint juleps, along with live music and watching the running of the 145th Kentucky Derby. This year's grant recipients were Hilltop Child and Family Development Center, KIPP St. Louis, and Unleashing Potential.
