Guests will enjoy a wonderful afternoon of savory southern food, authentic mint juleps, wine tasting, great music, and of course, the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby! The party runs from 3:30 - 7:30 pm and features a silent and live auction in which guests can bid on a range of select items such as fabulous jewelry, vacations, sports memorabilia, as well as some very special items for the Derby enthusiast.

A new feature in 2013 was Maxum Cigars.  Maxum Cigars is back in 2014,  featuring the finest in Dominican, Indonesian and Nicaraquan tobaccos.  Rob Menaker, President, will be in house doing a rolling demonstration for guests to enjoy and is donating a humidor and 20 cigars to our auction!  Maxum Cigars perform at weddings, Bar/Bat Mitvahs and private and corporate functions.  Please view their complete line of cigars at
