Support the Children at Derby Days
Nov 02, 2016 12:52PM
Throughout the week, these teams will compete in several events, ultimately ending with our main event, the Lip Sync, where each team will perform a dance in front of thousands of fellow students, faculty and local supporters. At the end of the Lip Sync, the total amount raised for the year is announced, and a team is crowned as the year’s Derby Days Champion.
Derby Days has grown to become the largest run event by a single Greek organization in the world. As well, we hold the international record for the highest amount of money raised ever in Derby Days history, dating back to 1935. In 2015, our Derby Days raised over $220,000; the year before, $185,000.
Throughout the past five years, Derby Days at Rutgers University has raised over $1,000,000 for the Children’s Miracle Network. With the generosity of our sponsors, our participants and the community at large, Derby Days looks to reach new heights in 2016.
If you would like to donate, or sponsor the event call Haig Bakhtiarian at 732-996-9336.
