THE BOSO Foundation Raises $8K at 4th Annual Derby Day Party to Fund Water Well Installations in Uganda
Local non-profit brings together SB County wineries, businesses and Kentucky Derby to support East African country
Proceeds from the event funds the BOSO Foundation’s mission to provide safe and accessible drinking water to Ugandan villages. By installing water wells closer to village centers, the BOSO Foundation eliminates the six hours normally spent walking for water. This allows children to remain in school, farmers to dedicate more time tending to crops and goods to be sold in the market.
This year’s Derby Day featured 11 wineries from Santa Barbara County and a Makers Mark Mint Julep Bar. The event also included a photo booth, silent auction, and a viewing of the running of the Kentucky Derby.
