The Manchester-Essex Rotary Club held their 2015 Kentucky Derby Party and Auction.  Over 100 guests, in their best Derby attire, helped raise $18,000. Auctioneers Senator Bruce Tarr, Dave Peterson, Paul Murphy, and Mike Storella stirred the crowd to reach deep into their pockets for a good cause. Proceeds go towards local scholarships as well as other community needs. The Club extends its most sincere thanks to all of the local sponsors, businesses, organizations, and individuals who donated items for auction.
