DERBY DAY SPONSORS
The Derby Day Party hosted by PROC Foundation, Incorporated, is a high-caliber social event centered around the prestigious Kentucky Derby Race. The event is held annually on the first Saturday in May. It is adorned with big hats and bowties, as guests enjoy live music and dancing to the rhythmic sounds from a DJ and a live band. The first Derby Day Party was held in May 2015 and its attendance has tripled since that time. The event features heavy hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, raffle items, door prizes, outdoor gaming and of course the watching of the live televised Kentucky Derby Race wide screens.
At the Derby Day Party, guests find themselves admiring the beautiful array of colors and outfits fashioned by every profession through out the evening.
