Break out your hats and bow ties for an amazing afternoon of horse races and drag queens as we celebrate the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 5 (4 - 8 p.m.) at The Warehouse on State!
Join us on the red carpet and place your bets during our first-ever Spring fundraiser to support scholarships for LGBT students and allies. Tickets include event entry, streaming of horse races, heavy hors d'oeuvres, opportunities to bet on your favorite horses, silent auction, drag queen performances, and plenty of ways to win fabulous prizes! Enter our best hat and best bow tie competitions. We will have a cash bar, so this event is open to those 21 years of age and over.
Come early to get your bets ready, sip a few mint juleps, and snag a great seat for the show. Be sure to come dressed to impress. This is an event you don't want to miss!
