Get Ready To Get Down And Derby
Break out your fancy hats, it’s Derby time.
Unless you’re one of the few horse-racing fans left in America, odds are that Derby Day is less about the most exciting two minutes in sports and more about playing lawn games, getting dressed up and sipping on mint juleps—and sometimes even raising money for a good cause. Lucky for you, there are plenty of events in the Boston area that offer exactly that.
Race to the Finish with Boston’s Party People!
The Great American Foundation is back to celebrate the 143rd running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 6th, 2017. Please join us for a full day of contests, music, and celebration as we gear up for the “fastest 2 minutes in sports”.
Beginning at 3:00pm, Society on High will be filled with the best looking southern belles and dapper gentlemen this city has to offer! We’ll be running for the roses all day long with specialty Derby Day drinks while raising money for some great causes through charitable betting a silent auction. As always, dress to impress since prizes will be awarded to the most stylish guy and gal in the crowd.
General Admission tickets are $10 but free to the first 100 ladies who register for their ticket on-line. We also have 8 tables for purchase at $200 which includes admission for 6 and a sponsor gift for your table to enjoy! Special to this year is the Patio that will be in full swing!
