Please join us at Oak Hill Stables on Saturday, May 5, 2018, as we share in the magic of Churchill Downs for the “Run for the Roses.” Our second annual Kentucky Derby party, Juleps & Jockeys, begins in conjunction with the start of the live broadcast at 3:00 p.m. and lasts until 7:00 p.m. Enjoy Southern cuisine, mint juleps, a silent auction, big hats, seersucker suits, and so much more as we unite in the festivities that make the Kentucky Derby such a renowned tradition.
We have several sponsorship opportunities available that will enable you to make a significant difference throughout the Lafayette-Oxford-University (LOU) community through a single contribution.
