3rd Annual Ele's Place Derby Day Soirée
Join us for an evening of Southern Flair and Fare as we celebrate Spring and the 146th "Run for the Roses" on Saturday, May 2, 2020. Post time is five o'clock in the afternoon. Fitting to the theme is the location at the historic Earhart Manor on the campus of Concordia University in Ann Arbor. Guests are encouraged to don their derby attire; ladies big hats and gentlemen bow ties.
Guests can anticipate a fun filled afternoon hosted by Emcee Chuck Colby introducing everything Derby including pre-derby coverage, a little friendly mock wagering leading up to the actual “Run for the Roses;” bourbon tasting, mint juleps, silent/live auction, wine toss and derby inspired fare. But that is not all! The Derby Soirée afterglow party begins at 8:00 pm, shortly after “the run for the roses”. Enjoy the evening dancing under the stars at the Jockey Club with featured DJ - Nicole Myint!
All proceeds from this event benefit the children, teens and families of Ele's Place - Ann Arbor.
