Held at Darby House at Darby Dan Farms, the event benefited the students at Bishop Ready High School and saw 250 people come together for a fun-filled evening. There were eight races, a silent auction, a Derby Hat Contest, buffet dinner catered by Cameron Mitchell Catering, and a Kentucky Bourbon Tasting… Check back later for news about next year’s event…it’s an evening that is not to be missed!
