Join us for the 6th Annual Kentucky Derby Fundraiser.

This year's event will be Saturday, May 1, 2021 at the Ed Lee North Chapel (620 E Viola Ave., Washington, IN).

Online Auction open until Noon on May 2.

All proceeds from the 6th Annual Kentucky Derby Fundraiser will help support the Perinatal Navigator Program at Daviess Community Hospital. This program was implemented in 2020 to assist women with resources and help cover the cost of prenatal care and delivery. The average cost per woman is about $4700.00. We anticipate there are 3 - 5 women or more each year who need this help. Without assistance, these women ultimately arrive at our ER with no prior care to deliver a baby and with no money to pay.

Our Navigator (Desiree Lewis) connects with women before, during and after the birth of a child and helps them with education on caring for themselves and their baby. The program also has classes for fathers to help them understand how to care for a newborn.
