Run for the Roses raises funds for Milford Fine Arts

The Milford Arts Council will hold its annual Run for the Roses fundraiser on Saturday, May 2.
The event, from 4 to 7 p.m., will feature live telecast of the 6 p.m. Kentucky Derby horse race. A “fabulous hat” contest will bring some of the outrageousness of the actual derby in Kentucky, with prizes awarded. There will be hors d’oeuvre, wines, mint juleps and a cash bar. A live jazz performance will set the mood and tempo. There also will be silent auctions of fine art, fine wines, a cocktail cruise, a day of sailing, vacation homes, a lottery tree, theater tickets and more.
Reservations are required.
For tickets or further information visit or call the Milford Arts Council at 203-878-6647.
Tickets are $35.
