We’ll celebrate the heritage, traditions, and style of the Kentucky Derby with Southern hospitality and a party mentality from 2:00 until 6:00 p.m. – it will be a day you won’t soon forget! There is still time to buy your tickets online through Thursday, May 5 - get yours today!
Join us to watch “The Run for the Roses” on big-screen televisions and live racing all day on the Lone Star Park track. Pick your horses, place your bets, and cheer on your favorites while enjoying a lavish buffet and and complimentary beer and wine (don’t forget your Mint Julep!). Wear your finest Derby hat, because prizes will be awarded to those who do it best.
A silent auction will offer the chance to bid on a fabulous array of items, including pairs of Manolo's and Christian Louboutin's heels. The live auction will be an exciting culmination to the day, featuring one-of-a-kind trips and tempting luxuries.
