Kentucky Derby Day
The Woodstock Inn & Station
North Woodstock, NH

Saturday, May 5th; Festivities begin at 5:00 PM

Jean’s Playhouse is excited to invite guests once again to its annual fundraising dinner & auction, but this year with a fun twist. The event has moved from January to May in order to take advantage of celebrating the Spring season, and this year it will take place on the Kentucky Derby! So we invite you to don your favorite Derby hat, place your horse bets, and join us at the Woodstock Inn & Station for a wonderful celebration. All proceeds benefit our Annual Fund and allow us to produce live theatre and arts education that reach more than 30,000 people annually. Please help add to our fund by enjoying a fantastic buffet dinner of Southern fare (provided by the Woodstock Station), games and entertainment, and participating in both our live and silent auctions.

The event will start at 5:00 PM with passed out hors d’oeuvres and live music. Browse our silent auction where you will find gift certificates, products, services, and even trips from a wide range of companies, both local to Lincoln, the state of NH, and beyond. Next, watch the race and cheer on your favorite horse! Dinner & dessert will proceed, along with our live auction items, handled expertly by Thomas Tremblay, a favorite “auctioneer” of local events!  Lastly, we will announce winners of auctions, raffles, door prizes, and of course the best hat of the night … because what’s the derby without magnificent hats?

Tickets are $60.

EARLY BIRD SPECIAL, if you buy your tickets before April 29, you get $10 off each ticket, no limit!
