Derby Daze Donation

The Gardens Hotel owner Kate Miano presented the Key West Police Mounted Unit with a check for $3100, funds raised in the recent Derby Daze fundraiser at the hotel.

This is the second year that the Miano and the Gardens has generously donated to the Mounted Unit after hosting the Derby Days event that coincides with the Kentucky Derby.

The Mounted Unit is one of the most popular units of the Key West Police Department. These equestrian officers provide a daily presence that is particularly beneficial downtown and with crowds.
