On May 4th at 9:30 A.M., The Historic Homes Foundation and Garden and Gun Magazine join forces to host the traditional with a twist 35th Annual Derby Breakfast, complete with traditional regional fare, bluegrass, fashion, and of course, a touch of bourbon.
"Our guests love celebrating Derby Day with us ,” says Hollis Starks, Derby Breakfast committee member for seven years, “not only because they know they will create priceless memories with their friends and associates—they are proud to be supporting the preservation of some of our historic treasures. It’s a perfect way to begin the day before heading to Churchill Downs or to the next party!”
This year, breakfast guests will enjoy regional cuisine, coffee and cocktails while they explore the beautiful Farmington Historic Plantation house and gardens. Bluegrass sounds of “The Porch Possums” will have attendees tapping their feet and a casual game of croquet will be played on the lawn. An Original Makers Club Boutique silent auction will feature exclusive packages and once-in-a-lifetime experiences to benefit the Historic Homes Foundation. Each guest will also receive an official program for the 139th Kentucky Derby.
“We have a few tickets remaining and we always love to see new faces,” says Starks. “Once you come, you won’t be able to imagine celebrating the first Saturday in May any other way!”
