WHAT: The second-annual Raffle for the Roses is an online raffle that gives Derby fans the chance to experience the Kentucky Derby or the Kentucky Oaks like an A-list celebrity, while helping children in crisis.

The Kentucky Oaks and Derby represent two days of the very best of Kentucky’s Southern hospitality, history and excitement. But when the excitement of the races is over, the trauma of our children is still present, all 365 days a year. Maryhurst is there to care every day, giving children hope and providing healing through a continuum of innovative and specialized care.

MARYHURST: Founded in 1843, Maryhurst is the oldest nonprofit in the state of Kentucky serving kids and families facing crisis. Driven by a belief in children’s inherent worth and the strength of family relationships, Maryhurst offers healing through a specialized continuum of care that prevents abuse, restores hope, and empowers survivors of trauma. Programs include individual and family counseling; psychiatric and campus-based residential treatment for girls; therapeutic foster care and adoption; and community-based transitional living services. Maryhurst is the first agency in the state to fully adopt the trauma-informed care philosophy, and it remains the only residential nonprofit capable of caring for adolescent girls diagnosed as severely traumatized by abuse.
