The Kentucky Derby @ The Staleys
Ladies & gentlemen, the time has come for all good people to don their best chapeau, tip a mint julep and lay down hard cash on your favorite filly. This event will commence at 7:00 pm. at the Staley Household. Race attire will be more than welcome. Ladies are encouraged to be outrageous with their hats, after all this is.. Derby Day. Prizes awarded for best “Ladies hat.”
Race cards and instructions will be handed out before the races begin. Everyone will have a chance to raise their bets once the horses have been viewed. We have a professional crew that will sell race tickets and an extraordinary TOTE working the odds.
There will be “only” 5 races. Six ladies of our choice will orchestrate the final race. After the races the stands will be emptied and directed to the feed stalls for food, and a limited amount of liquid refreshments will be provided, otherwise BYOB.
Bets will start at $1.00. Again there are only 5 races. One may have a lovely evening for not more than $5.00 (if you are gutsy). The proceeds of the evening will benefit MOAS’ SOT (Support Our Troops) Program. Please join us in our endeavor to have fun, enjoy each others company, and have a few brews and tasty Derby Day morsels.
