Here They Come(c) Dave

Kentucky Derby Party

On Saturday, May 6, 2017, from 4 – 8PM, Poplar Grove will hold its 4th Annual Kentucky Derby Party to support our efforts in conservation, education and preservation and to help raise funds in support of our Animal Sanctuary.

Kentucky_Derby_Mint JulepsShow off those stylish hats, searsucker suits, or a favorite pair of well-loved jeans. Wet your whistle at our open bar, featuring Mint Juleps and Apple Martinis by our favorite bartender, Devin. 

Join us under the tent, courtesy of L&L Tent and Party Rentals, and tempt your palette with southern fare selections.

Televising the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic & the Kentucky Derby, there will be prizes for Win, Place & Show, including various sizes of Marker’s Mark and Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select. Raffle tickets are $5.00 each for Woodford Reserve and $10 each for the Derby. All proceeds generated from the raffle races will directly support the Animal Sanctuary.

Consider ordering your hats from ACT I Hats & Accessories. They will also be on site if you should arrive hatless – gasp!

Don’t let our gussying up keep you from kicking off your shoes, tossing that hat and kicking up the sand. 

Tickets go on sale April 1, 2017 for $60, and includes a 1-year Individual Membership to Poplar Grove, so mark your calendar to join us for one thoroughbred good time!  This is a 21+ event.
