Leadership Dutchess, the signature program of The Chamber Foundation, Inc. is dedicated to educating and motivating citizens to serve in leadership roles within our community. Sedore & Company Audit Manager, Danielle Hostetter, CPA, is a participant in the Class of 2016.
As a part of this program, participants are required to plan a fundraiser for the Foundation from conception to inception. This year’s theme, DERBY PARTY, was a huge success. The event drew over 200 people at the Therapeutic Equestrian Center in Cold Spring. Guests viewed the big race while enjoying cocktails and southern style hors-d’oeuvres, live entertainment, and a parade of horses overlooking serene views of Cold Spring Mountain.
The event featured a “Hat Parade” contest, Derby winner selection and silent auction. Proceeds from the Derby Party will benefit the Chamber Foundation and its efforts to build a qualified workforce throughout Dutchess County.
