Saturday evening festivities kicked off at 5:45 p.m. with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Wearing festive Derby attire, from decorative hats to dapper bow ties, guests were outfitted for the exciting event.
Guests cheered on the 20 horses as they watched the Derby live on the big screen in the Town Square. Following the most exciting two minutes in sports, with Always Dreaming crowned victor, guests enjoyed dinner in the Liston Commons. Timothy Hopkins Catering served a robust southern menu featuring Mini Kentucky Hot Browns, Maple Glazed Scallops Wrapped in Bacon, Bourbon Meatball Skewers and Barbecued Baby Back Ribs and other southern favorites.
Andy Luman took the floor and worked his magic during the live auction. And capping off the evening's fun, DJ Allo spun tunes on the dance floor. All proceeds raised, through ticket sales and online and live bidding, benefit the Parents' Association. Thank you to all for giving back to the PA and to Brookwood.
