On the Dock of the Bay Fundraiser

Saturday, May 6, 2023

Our event in 2023 will be worth the wait with a Kentucky Derby theme, #derbyonthedock. Join us early to see the Kentucky Derby LIVE.

We welcome everyone back with your event favorites including the silent auction, delicious food, friends, and FUNds for 4-H.

The 2023’s event entertainment will be great, so be ready to dance the night away. In celebration of the derby theme, wear your best hat, seersucker, pearls, and bow ties to make the night more festive than ever!

On the Dock of the Bay is the Eastern 4-H Center’s signature fundraising event that primarily supports youth programs and activities. Additional expenditures include 4-H camping scholarships, building repairs/improvements, program materials, and event expenses.
