We're off to the races y'all!
Don your big hats & bowties for a great cause. Join YWCA as we watch and celebrate the 149th Kentucky Derby - the Run For The Roses.
Individual tickets and Reserved Tables of ten guests are available. Guests must be 21 to attend.
Guests will enjoy a custom menu of hors d' oeuvres, plated dinner & dessert, created by Butler Country Club Executive Chef James Houghton to celebrate the Derby. During the checkout process, there is an opportunity to note dietary restrictions. The nod to tradition will continue as each guest receives one complimentary signature cocktail, with a choice of a Mint Julep or Oaks Lily. A cash bar will be available the rest of the evening.
Dress in your Derby best! Prizes will be awarded for best hat, best bow tie/pocket square & best dressed couple.
Guests will enjoy the pageantry and sing along to "My Old Kentucky Home" while the event streams in the ballroom. We'll have baskets, betting games, and other fun raffles to enjoy.
Around 6:45pm, we'll cheer on "The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports!" as we watch the 149th Kentucky Derby. Then, after the winner is crowned, DJ Rikki from Cabaret DJ will keep us moving and grooving on the dance floor.
We'll have fun of games of chance to play in the lead up to the race, including:
Whisky Business Bourbon Raffle: Stock your bar with fan-favorite bourbons from brands like Angel's Envy, Makers Mark, FEW, Wigle, Woodford Reserve and more. Winner takes all!
Run for the Roses Reverse Raffle: Only 100 tickets available! Take a chance to win a Ferragamo crossbody bag valued at $1,450. Simple and chic, with an adjustable strap for shoulder or crossbody wear, it features the iconic Gancini logo print, double front flap and golden Gancini buckle closure.
Pick Your Winner Raffle: Purchase tickets and "bet" on your favorite horse to win. The tickets drawn from the winning horse's entries split the pot with YWCA.
Plus, many more surprises during the night...
