The Derby Museum is having a special breakfast on April 26th to benefit Laminitis.  It is pricey, however if you are interested...http://www.derbymuseum.org/event/barbaro_breakfast.html

Looks like the night before there is a big gala:

Kentucky Derby Museum Gala

(April 25, 2009)

The 24th annual Kentucky Derby Museum Gala will take place this year on Saturday, April 25th.  The black-tie event will be held in a spectacular tent transforming the infield of Churchill Downs into an elegant grand ballroom to remember. Each ticket includes cocktails, a delicious dinner catered by Silver Spoon Catering, and dancing.

 

Festivities will begin with cocktails at 7:00 p.m., dinner at 8:30 p.m., and dancing at 10:00 p.m.  Attendees not arriving in limousines will also have the benefit of a trolley ride from the parking lot to the infield. (Entrance at Gate 12)

 

The annual Gala serves as the only fundraising activity for the Museum’s endowment.

For tickets call 637-1111 ext. 228

 

Of course, this is NOT the most wonderful FOB dinner.

I wish I knew how much "partial" proceeds means............. I would hope it would be a good chunk, but usually these types of benefits give a percentage. At least at that price in my experience. I would love to go but that is too early. I would have to get up at 3:00 a.m. to get there in time.

No joke!  I sure hope a LARGE chunk o' change from these events goes to the Laminitis fund and other horsie charities.

Oh I'm sure they will.  That's probably why it costs so much :)
