This event was such a success last year, that they are doing it again. I am talking about the People's Place Second Annual Run For The Roses Kentucky Derby. It is happening tomorrow, May 6, at Ole Savannah 100 Rondout Landing in Kingston from 4 pm - 8 pm.

This is a great fundraiser event for People's Place. If you are not familiar with this great organization, let me tell you a little about what they do. They are a not for profit thrift store and food pantry on St. James Place in Kingston. People's Place has been feeding and clothing residents in Ulster County since 1972. And they do it with compassion, kindness, and dignity.

People's Place holds several fundraisers throughout the year, and the thrift store is full of great quality treasures. To learn more about People's Place and how you can donate, volunteer, or help out, check out their website at
