WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The eighth annual Derby4Dogs Garden Party Fundraiser will be presented by paws4people and MC Mortgage Group at Cape Fear Community College’s Union Station on Saturday, May 7.

The event supports paws4people, a non-profit organization that also trains and pairs assistance dogs with adults and children with physical or emotional needs.

“It is a complete Kentucky Derby inspired event,” Executive Administrator of Event Management Elise Barrett said in an interview with WECT, “...and it is overall a great time.”

Attendees can sign up for contests for best hat and bowtie, view The Kentucky Derby, the annual Puppy Derby, and spectate a live performance by Port City Shakedown, all taking place in the ballroom.

In addition to a silent auction, paws4people will be introducing a new live auction where attendees can win prizes.

“We actually did just sell out our tickets this morning, but you can join us virtually at 4:30 p.m. on our Youtube channel to watch the puppies run the race,” Barrett stated.

Online bidding began on April 25, and anyone who wants to partake in the silent auction online can start biddings here.
