Kentucky Derby Dinner Party


Saturday, May 4th

We're all too busy to go to Louisville, so let's just get all decked out and drive out to
West Chester for Kentucky Derby #145…Big Screen/HDTV-style.

  See Howard for Mint Julep; See Ralph to place random $2 bet

5:30 pm    Appetizers Served (prep your own dish!)

6:30 pm    No more betting… Judge Best Women’s/Men’s Hat

6:50 pm    Race Starts!  Sing ‘My Old Kentucky Home” & take pic

7:00 pm    Award Prize to Race Winner

7:15 pm    Buffet Dinner Starts - Host will provide Main Course: Honey Baked Ham


This Churchill Downs extravaganza has been a celebrated event ever since its inception in 1875.  It's all about tradition, it's all about style, it's all about partying, and it's also the greatest two minutes in sports!  

Held annually on the first Saturday in May, it's the first jewel in the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Horseracing.  We'll all be winners with a terrific cocktail party and a legendary race!  You provide an appetizer, side, salad or dessert.  Your hosts provide the Main Course (Honey Baked Ham) plus mint juleps and soda/wine/beer/water.


Cost is $20 p/p for members, $30 p/p for non-members.
Again, everyone attending must also bring one dish per person (appetizer, side or dessert; and please let us know in advance exactly what your dish will be (so we don’t have duplications).

We'll be awarding prizes for "Best Hat," for Women… and for Men. Plus other fun Prizes! So, come dressed to impress!  

Before the race starts, we’ll have $2/horse betting (betting is strictly random, we draw the horse’s name from a hat); so bring some extra dollars for that!  Then we’ll all mill around like millionaires in our own "Millionaire's Row," wearing our Derby hats, sipping our mint juleps, welcoming in Spring, and of course singing "My Old Kentucky Home."

This party is always a big hit so sign up early!  After the race we award all our prizes for outfits & hats, dole out the cash to our Race winner(s), and then enjoy a delicious buffet dinner and dessert.  

Please sign up with Kathleen Weisz at by Friday, April 26th at the latest to sign up and to tell her exactly what dish you will bring.
