BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Kentucky Derby is widely known as the greatest two minutes in sports. In Brevard County, it also represents a great opportunity for charitable fundraising.

Rockledge Rotary is hosting its signature, charitable fundraising event — Derby Day — on Saturday, May 5 at Wickham Park in Melbourne from 2 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
