— There was plenty of “horsing around” at Saturday afternoon’s Bonita Springs Chamber Foundation’s Kentucky Derby Party.

Mint juleps and fabulous hats took center stage at the party, with a best hat contest upping the fashion ante. Meanwhile, guests took their chances on a number of different raffles and games, including two black jack tables and a very popular pony race.

Despite all the available activities, everyone gathered around two flat screen televisions at race time, cheering on the steeds they’d bet on throughout the night.

And with all of the proceeds from the night’s wagers going to support scholarships for local seniors, everyone came out a winner.
