Join us for a Kentucky Derby/Cinco de Mayo themed evening with great friends to benefit the Basic Needs Programs of Catholic Charities. This premier event will feature longtime Cleveland television personality Denise Dufala. Enjoy event inspired fare from the Hard Rock Rocksino’s Executive Chef, best attire and hat contests, dancing, a Margarita Throwdown, Derby Draw and side board raffles for great prizes, and more! We are so excited to be working with the Event Staff and the Executive Chef at the Rocksino. With their expertise, Derby for Dollars/Derby De Dolares again will be a first-class event, and we would love to have you as a part of the evening.
BASIC NEEDS PROGRAMS
Catholic Charities’ Emergency Assistance, Community Meals and Food Pantry programs are often the first point of contact that people in need have with Catholic Charities. These programs provide food, financial assistance, as well as access and referrals to Catholic Charities’ many other programs and services. These programs are critical to our community. Nearly 26% of all Akron residents live below the poverty level. That’s over 52,000 people. For children under 18, it’s an alarming 42.5%, an increase of nearly 6.8% over last year. In 2016, we were able to help over 24,000 families with financial assistance, utilities and food, as well as the means to secure resources to promote self-sufficiency.
