On June 9, the Methuen Sons and Daughters of Italy, Lodge 902 ran a Night at the Races fund-raiser.
This exciting event – based on the Kentucky Derby – began in 2019 and was a huge hit! With the COVID pandemic over, Vice President Gina Neve and her committee brought this fun night back. Approximately 85 people shouted for their favorite pony as the horses headed to the finish line.
The event’s generous sponsors had a race named after them, and their business cards were on the various tables. Members donated 12 baskets and a huge raffle of the games along with a 50/50 raffle.
Female guests were in style with a gallery of hats decorated with racing enhancements, and even a few brave men showed off some enthusiastic headwear. Prizes were awarded for best hats.

Grace Frittitta oozed elegance in her pretty hat.

Raffle ticket sellers Gerry and Terry Smith were all smiles!

Darlene Wermers was pretty in pink!

 

Winner of Best Men’s Hat was Bob Jackson
