The Kentucky Derby is the most famous race in America and also one of the biggest social occasions not only in the state of Kentucky, but all across the country. For the third straight year, the Derby-Shelton Rotary is bringing the fun to the Brownson Country Club in Shelton. Of course, the race can be seen live, but there will also be plenty of food and libations to help celebrate the 143rd Run for the Roses. Tickets are priced at $40 per person or you can purchase 10 tickets for the special “Owners Box”. Owner’s boxes (tables of 10 only) each have the opportunity to create their own themed, decorated and exclusive table setting for $380 plus your designed table setting. There will be a buffet dinner and cash bar for the evening.
Just as in Louisville, the festive occasion calls for festive dress, and there will be special prizes for the best overall and most creative Kentucky Derby attire. The Derby is noted for its bright colors and fancy hats, and this is your chance to wear something “big and Bright” and fit right in. So click on the poster on the left to learn how to order your tickets, and then start practicing your best singing voice to join in a loud rendition of “My Old Kentucky Home”. And while you are at it, you’ll be helping to support Derby-Shelton Rotary’s Scholarship Programs.
