Giddy up, Hampton Roads!

Temple Israel is dressing up and placing bets for a night at the races when the synagogue hosts its first-ever Temple Israel Derby. The fast-paced action will happen inside “Brody Downs” (formerly Brody Auditorium) with six separate “live” horse races on a projection screen.

Sponsor a horse in each race or sponsor an entire race. A horse sponsorship is $100 and a race costs $500. The best part? Sponsors get “naming rights” to everything they buy! Plus, there will be a derby hat competition.

The cost is $25 per person in advance and $30 at the door. Entry fee includes wine and beer, light snacks and dessert. To purchase tickets, contact Temple Israel at 489-4550. For more information, contact Wendy Brodsky at metswmn@yahoo.com or 639-3541.
