The RCO would like to extend its enthusiastic thanks to everyone who made our 26th annual Derby Day celebration such a success! The Peppermill’s Tuscany Ballroom was a wonderful venue. Many, many businesses and individuals donated items for the live and silent auctions. Over 200 friends and patrons of the RCO attended and enjoyed the lively afternoon. Our amazing team of Derby Day Committee members and volunteers, headed by Marsha Cohen, put together this elaborate event and handled its many logistical challenges. This most important fundraiser of the RCO year was a big hit. To everyone that participated, thank you very much!
