Join us as we bring back the "Original Derby Eve Party" to Lexington. Made famous by Anita Madden's wild, thematic Derby Eve parties many years ago, we are taking the party by the reigns and preparing for an all-out bash! Join us, won't you?
Limited tickets will be available at the door at a first come first served basis. Be sure to get there early to ensure entrance!
Our big event is coming up in two short days and we cannot wait to celebrate with everyone on Friday night at what promises to be the best Derby celebration in Lexington! Thank you once again for your support of JustFundKy.
We expect a big crowd on Friday and as such, wanted to send you a few reminders:
The doors will open at 8:00 p.m. In an effort to accommodate our guests and to assist with traffic congestion, we will offer two parking options. You may park yourself in the Cox Street parking lot located across from Rupp Arena and we will supply a shuttle service to the Grand Reserve. Look for the tents in the parking lot and Bluegrass Tours will be transporting to and from the Grand Reserve throughout the evening. You may also choose to take advantage of our valet parking which will be offered curbside on Manchester Street. Look for JustFundKy and directional signs to assist you with parking.
Sponsor check in (and their guests) will be at the Barrel House, which is adjacent to The Grand Reserve. Prepaid non-sponsor ticket holders should proceed to the ‘will call’ registration, located inside the Grand Reserve. We will have volunteers to help direct you to the proper registration tables.
Once inside, you will enjoy an open premium bar, hors d’oeurves, and a variety of great entertainment. In addition, we will have both silent and live auctions which will include juried art, fabulous and unique vacation trips, and local entertainment packages for UK sports, theatre, and Keeneland. Suggested dress is black tie, cocktail, or Egyptian-themed costume. The party will conclude at 1:00 a.m.
Special note: Buster’s, a venue which is a neighbor to The Grand Reserve, is also having an event the same night. So we encourage you to plan your travel accordingly.
Looking forward to seeing you on Friday!
