Reserve your table now for our Second Annual Derby Party on Saturday, May 4, 2024. This event sold out last year and we anticipate the same this year. All guests are invited to wear their Kentucky Derby hats, dresses, and suits and they will be treated to a night of gourmet food and unlimited signature drinks. The Kentucky Derby will be shown live on the "big screen". After dinner, there will be a short program from WHFV and a live auction with the Nigro Brothers. The party will continue with music and dancing from Drew Six. War Horses for Veterans supports veterans and first responders and all proceeds from this event will provide funding for programming throughout the year.
