Down Home Derby

The 12th annual Down Home Derby fundraiser on May 7, 2022 raised over $150,000 in net proceeds to support the CDA’s mission of affording all children in our community high-quality early education.

This year’s fundraiser was held at Reid Barn in Cumming. Guests enjoyed a live viewing of the Kentucky Derby, dinner, dancing and games all benefitting the CDA.

“We were so happy we were able to bring back the Down Home Derby fundraiser this year after two years without it,” said CDA CEO and Executive Director Maggie DeCan. “While we had a lot of fun with our Derby theme and got to watch a great upset in the race, the most important part of the night was sharing our mission and letting guests see their donations at work. We were overwhelmed with the generosity of everyone who attended.”
