Horses and Hats in the Hills

On Saturday, May 6, 2017, The Litchfield Aid of the Connecticut Junior Republic (CJR) will present Horses and Hats in the Hills, a Kentucky Derby themed fundraiser for the benefit of the Connecticut Junior Republic.  This gala event will be held from 4:30 to 9:30 PM at The Tavern Off The Green at The Litchfield Inn.  The benefit will feature the Kentucky Derby, a buffet dinner, open bar, music and dancing, and a special performance by The Nutmeg Dancers.  A live auction, a Run for the Roses 50/50 cash raffle, and a hat contest will also be a part of the evening festivities.

All proceeds will support CJR’s services for vulnerable and struggling children and families from communities throughout Connecticut.

The Litchfield Aid is a nonprofit volunteer organization that has been raising funds for the sole benefit of the Connecticut Junior Republic for more than 100 years.  Since its inception in 1911, The Aid has contributed more than $2.5 million to support CJR programs and services, and to improve its facilities.
