SYI Featured Event: A Night at the Derby
This is a unique fundraiser and social event that uses Thoroughbred Horse Races instead of a traditional raffle to determine the winning ‘number’. Races are up-to-date productions shot with five cameras. Each race features commentary by professional race track announcers and shows the horses parading to the post, loading in the gate, split screen close-ups, horses in the lead graphics, the tote board results, the winning horse in the winner’s circle, slow motion photo finish replays, plus a full graphic and commentary announcing the results of each race.
All races will be projected on a state-of-the-art video projection system to give everyone the feeling that they are ‘at the derby’. There will be a total of 10 races with 10 horses in each race. Prizes are determined by the number of participants and how many raffle tickets are purchased for each horse.
Proud sponsors include: Emerling Ford, Ozone Rangers, Joe and Michelle Claus, The Choirboys at Lawrence's Tavern, Emerling Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Joylan Theater, S&S Taxidermy, Cheap Chollies, and Creighton, Johnsen, & Giroux, Attorneys at Law.

About Springville Youth Incorporated:
Springville Youth Inc. is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that was founded in 1940 and provides recreation services for the residents of the Town of Concord and Village of Springville, New York. S.Y.I. works very closely with local government entities, as well as the Springville-Griffith Institute Central School District to provide numerous sporting programs for children ranging in age from 5-21 years of age. These programs run throughout the year and every effort is made to make all programs accessible and affordable to all who wish to participate. The organization also owns property on South Buffalo Street in the Village of Springille which is home to the community pool, basketball courts, an outdoor volleyball court, and playground equipment. The grounds are also home for many of our summer recreation programs including Arts and Crafts, sports camps, and swimming lessons. Springville Youth, Inc. is directed by an administrative board that meets the first Thursday of each month at the Village offices located above the Franklin Street fire hall. Meetings are open to the public and S.Y.I. encourages members of the community to contribute to the ongoing success of the organization. Funding for S.Y.I. is provided in equal part by the Town of Concord and Village of Springville, and by program participant fees.
