And they’re off! The YWCA of Palm Beach County’s “Run for the Roses” Pre-Derby Tea will be held on Thursday, May 2, 2019 at The Beach Club, Palm Beach. Susan Rothman and Chelly Templeton are serving as Co-Chairwomen.

The event will feature a reception, tea cup and silent auctions, entertainment and a hat contest; guests are encouraged to wear their best Derby hats.

According to Rothman, “Chelly and I are thrilled to be co-chairing the annual tea, especially with the fun Kentucky Derby theme since both of us are from Kentucky. We realize how important the programs of the YWCA are to families in the community, and we are honored to support them.”

Proceeds will benefit the various programs of the YWCA including Harmony House, a shelter for women and children who are victims of domestic violence; a Child Development Center; Rapid Re-Housing for domestic violence victims and their families; Y-Girls and Y-Teens, school-based programs in the Glades for girls ages 8 to 18; and a racial justice initiative.
