Arts Council Northeast hosts the fourth-annual Triple Crown Affair at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie on Saturday, May 2, in the Alysheba Ballroom, where guests can watch the live races from the terrace. We’ll celebrate the heritage, traditions, and style of the Kentucky Derby with Southern hospitality and a party mentality from 1:00 until 6:00 p.m. – it will be a day you won’t soon forget!

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 open bar (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, while the live auction will be an exciting culmination to the day, featuring one-of-a-kind trips and tempting luxuries.

Proceeds from the event benefit Arts Council Northeast to fund its community arts programs, grants, Summer Arts Camp for children, and free MasterWorks Concert Series.

Tickets are $150 each, and tables of 10 are available. Reserve your table online at http://www.artscouncilnortheast.org/Triple_Crown_Affair.aspx, call 817-283-3406 or e-mail lkoch@artscouncilnortheast.org.
