Don't miss all the fun and excitement of horse racing at The Derby, Books, Bowties, & Bourbon. Preferred Living is once again a sponsor of this unique event that raises Funds to purchase books for young readers. This year's Derby is Friday evening, March 6.

The Derby is a joint event for The 2nd & 7 Foundation and United Way of Delaware County who have teamed up to help children develop literacy skills. Both organizations encourage a love of reading by providing free books for children. When a child develops literacy skills, he is more likely to experience success in school and later in life. Statistics show that:

  • 66% of children who can't read by the end of the 3rd grade will end up in jail or on welfare
  • Increasing access to books for low-income children is the most successful way to improve their reading achievement
  • Providing a variety of new, age-appropriate books nearly triples a child's interest in reading in just three months

Join Preferred Living at this exciting event featuring horse races, a bourbon bar and a fine cigar bar. You'll have the chance to win your choice of prizes when your horse wins a race. Ten races give you the opportunity for more winning and more fun. Help to ensure that the children of the Columbus area are ready to be the leaders of the future.
