Join us for a day at the races at the Linn-Mar Foundation’s Annual Mane Event, Kentucky Derby style!  This annual event is taking on an exciting new format this year. Guests will enjoy a longer social time from 6:00 p.m.- 8:00 p.m., and this is just the beginning of a grand evening. Right out of the gate we begin with delicious, heavy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar, live music entertainment, and a silent auction. As the night continues, you will be racing to participate in action-packed derby games, casino fun, cash raffles,  a wine & whiskey toss, mobile bidding and more!

Proceeds from the Mane Event directly benefit the Linn-Mar Community School District by providing important K-12 classroom and curriculum program funding, enrichment opportunities, literacy and music education, emerging classroom technology and so much more for the students of our district.
