Flag City Morning Rotary Derby Gala
May 4 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Tickets for this fundraiser are $75 and can be purchased by contacting Flag City Morning Rotarian Betsy Hackworth at firstname.lastname@example.org. Limited tickets still available!
Attendees can celebrate the 145th running of the horse-racing event with blackjack tables, games, raffles, a live auction, music, food prepared by Mancy’s Steakhouse, and appropriately themed beverages as they view the Churchill Downs race live. Each guest will receive a free mint julep and a commemorative glass to take with them. Valet parking will be offered.
The evening’s entertainment will include music by DJ Joe Deuble from J.D. Jams, Janet Amid will provide astrological readings (attendees should have their time of birth), and Kevin Rettig will be the evening’s auctioneer. Keepsake Portraits will also provide a photo booth for guests to ham it up for the camera.
Guests are encouraged to dress in casual business attire or “derby themed attire.” Women are invited to wear colorful and decorative hats and men may choose to wear festive bow ties and socks. There is a hat contest for the ladies and a bow tie/sock contest for the men, with prizes for first place.
