Derby Hats

Our "hats off" to a great American tradition, the Kentucky Derby is a popular celebration of education with great fun, food, and grand prizes. 



The Upper Tampa Bay Education Foundation provides high school seniors with technical scholarships and supports unique and innovative elementary school teaching programs.


The Children’s Home Network SEEDS program ensures at-risk children are ready for kindergarten, promoted at the end of the school year, and reading on level by 3rd grade.

UTB Education Foundation Derby Nite2015 DERBY NITE WRAP UP


The big winner at the inaugural Derby Nite Race to Support Education hosted by Nielsen on Thursday, April 16th were the two new educational projects The Children's Home SEEDS program and the UTBEF Technical Scholarship Program.


A packed house in the Nielsen Ballroom created a buzz for education as the horses were called to post. As the field turned the last poll and thundered toward the finish line the crowd urged their horse to the finish line. In the background the clink of gaming chips rattled at the various casino tables as Education Supporters attempted to land a fistful of chips to exchange for raffle tickets.


Fashion was also ahead as the ladies strutted their Derby Hats around the room. One of the last contest of the Nite was the Derby Hat contest. All of the ladies and one gentleman were strong candidates for the best hat.

Please support our sponsors displayed below. Without them this would not happen. The UTB Education Foundation has a great group of volunteers, thank you for your tireless dedication.

Thank you to everyone for your support. We look forward to Derby Nite 2016.
