“It Is A Star Studded Night at Run for The Roses”

The stars will be out at “Run for the Roses”
on May 7th this year!!

Run For The Roses

Run For The Roses Party

“Run for the Roses” is the much-
anticipated Kentucky Derby themed party and auction in Tulsa. The exciting Kentucky Derby soiree launches on Saturday, May 7th, from 1:00 – 5:30 pm at the Tulsa Fairgrounds Art Deco Pavilion building.This will be the seventh year for this very popular fund-raising event for Tulsa Boys’ Home.

Our first “star” is actress Anne Lockhart,
best known for “Battlestar Galactia”,
“Knight Rider”, and “The Fall Guy”.
She will co-host “Run for the Roses”
with local “star” Kristen Dickerson
of Tulsa’s KTUL Channel Eight.

The word is also spreading like wildfire  about our third star — a horse that played the legendary “Seabiscuit” in the popular Disney movie in 2004 who will make his first public appearance!! “Rich in Dallas” was rescued and retired and, through a series of wonderful and unexpected events, will be living at Tulsa Boys’ Home for the long haul!
