Hats And Horses Gets Sponsorship Help From Commerce Bank


Commerce Bank recently made a nice donation to Rock Springs Main Street URA in becoming a sponsor of the Kentucky Derby viewing party “Hats and Horses”.

This year’s Hats and Horses is set for May 6th.  Last year’s event, held at the Bunning Freight Station in Downtown Rock Springs, featured heavy hors d’ouvres and cocktails along with attendees wearing “Derby Attire”  including big hats and dapper suits.

Funds raised through “Hats and Horses” have been used for projects produced by the Rock Springs Renewal Fund. The Rock Springs Renewal Fund, Inc. (RSRF) is a non-profit organization that runs parallel to the Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency.

Tickets for the event will be on sale soon.
