Derby Party Benefits Weingartner Endowed Nursing Scholarship at Gateway
Friends and family of the late Scott Weingartner will host a Kentucky Derby viewing
party Saturday, May 1, from 2 to 6:30 p.m. at Dickmanns Sports Caf in Fort Wright.
Proceeds from the fund-raiser will benefit the Scott Weingartner Endowed Scholarship
in Nursing at Gateway Community & Technical College.
Weingartner was a Gateway nursing student when he died in a traffic accident in 2005. The scholarship fund was created in his memory. Thanks to the generosity of prior donors, the college has been able to award the scholarship to several students in the past two years.
The public is invited to watch the Derby on a big-screen television while bidding on prize packages and vying for a $100 door prize. There will be split-the-pot drawings, mint juleps and other surprises. For more information, phone (859) 442-1176. Donations may be sent to Gateway Community & Technical College, 1030 Old State Road, Park Hills, KY 41011. Reservations are not required.
