Lucky you! There’s still time to get your ticket to party at the 14th Annual St. Lawrence School Gala’s Kentucky Derby on April 30. Ladies, grab your biggest hats, and mint juleps for your gents. Post time is 5:30 p.m. at the Big Stone Legion.
Odds are you’ll see your friends and be singing my Old Kentucky Home before dinner starts at 6 p.m. The front runners for dinner include: bourbon-barbecued meatballs, slow-smoked Kentucky beef brisket, spinach and artichoke dip, garlic mashed potatoes, and cheddar biscuits. But there’s more— and it’s all catered by Shady Beach. And don’t miss the hands down favorite Run for the Roses cupcakes by Amy’s Sweet Treats.
Down the stretch, you’ll want to take your chances at playing 50/50, the 2021 Winners Circle Motherboard, the Purse and Tool raffle, live auction, the horse race, horse race betting, the exclusive swag bag drawing, and more! Things are always exciting at the Derby.
Can’t wait to have some fun? Warm up with the online silent auction. This year’s silent auction is bigger and better than ever! It features over 100 amazing items. From seed and fireworks, to fine wine and birthday packages. You’ll discover things to do this summer and family-focused fun. To check out the list or jockey for your place in the bidding, go to: www.32auctions.com/stlawrencegala2021.
No need to sign up to browse. To bid, you will need to enter your name and email address, but all payments run through the school, so no credit card information is required. You will be notified by email if you are outbid which gives you a chance to place a higher bid if you would like. The website allows you to set a proxy bid if preferred. It is such a fun way to be a part of this fundraiser, even if you are not able to attend the actual event. The silent auction is going on now and closes at 7:30 p.m. on the night of the gala.
You could win, you could place. Just make sure you show up to the St. Lawrence School’s Kentucky Derby Gala!
Tickets are available, but it’s just under the wire. Purchase yours today! Call the school at 605.432.5673. (Maybe the Secretariat will answer.)
