…Fundraising Chair



Sentinel Editor

     The Tampa Alumni Chapter, Inc., Guide Right Foundation is preparing for its 3rd Derby Day Party. The event is about 2 months away, but Reginald Grigsby, Fundraising Chair of this year’s event, is encouraging those who plan to attend to ‘save the date’ and start preparing to enjoy the event.

     The third Derby Day and Casino Night will be held on Saturday, May 4, 2024, starting about 3 p. m. and lasting to about 8 p. m. The “Bowties, Hats & Bourbon III Exclusive Derby Day Party” will be held at the Venetian Center, 9724 Cross Creek Blvd., Tampa 33647. A single ticket will cost about $80, however there are also other prices. Visit www.TAMPADERBYDAY.COM for additional information.

     The Guide Right Foundation focuses its fundraising efforts around two signature events – The Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament and the Tampa Derby Day Party and Casino0 Night. Both events are designed to be fun, informative and community encompassing events with the ultimate goal set on investing in youth.

     The foundation is hoping to raise more than $30,000 for the Derby Day Party and Casino Night. These funds help to support a variety of youth development programs and scholarships awarded by the foundation.

      In addition to being in attendance, there are several ways to support these programs. The foundation is reaching out to businesses to invest as sponsors, and donate items for the silent auction and raffle.

     Grigsby, a Life Member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., says, “As attendees of the upcoming Tampa Derby Day + Casino Night Fundraiser, we understand the significance of our collective impact. Each ticket purchased, every moment shared, and every donation made contributes to a powerful narrative of community strength. This event isn’t just a night out; it’s an investment in the future of our local
youth through the Tampa Alumni Guide Right Foundation’s transformative
programs. Join us in this celebration of giving, where every contribution resonates as a commitment to building a stronger, more
empowered community for generations to come.”

     This year’s event is at a new location, Venetian Center. The casino-styled gaming event is an addition to the event; and as always, guests get to enjoy the “Red Carpet.”
