What’s better than the Kentucky Derby? The Kentucky Derby and an auction from the comforts of your own home definitely helps!

Ele’s Place Ann Arbor invites you to join in a virtual experience featuring the 147th Kentucky Derby LIVE. Come join us for an evening of big hats, bowties, and auctions on Saturday, May 1 from 6 to 7:30pm.

The event will be held virtually, so you and your family or friends are able to enjoy the Kentucky Derby and fundraising experience from anywhere safely. You’re able to host a Derby Day Soirée and invite everyone you know to join. This one-of-a-kind fundraising experience will help to support Ele’s Place Ann Arbor. Ele’s Place offers compassionate, no fee, peer grief programs for children, teens, and their families.

Registering for virtual access to the Derby Day Soirée @ Your Place is free. Registering will give you access to the 147th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs on May 1. Additionally, you’ll be assigned a bidding number for early access to the silent auction beginning on Monday, April 26. You’ll also get access to the Live Auction and the “Paddle Raise” during the event.

Ele’s Place is encouraging registration prior to the event. If you want to host an event, be sure your guests also register. This will help them stay in the know with the latest information about the Derby Day Soirée @ Your Place. A variety of cocktail and snack recipes are also offered so you can get the most out of this fun event. You can also pre-order Red Hearted Julep and Pink Hearted Pony cocktails for pick-up from Ann Arbor Distilling Company. A portion of the proceeds from each sale of Red Hearted Julep and Pink Hearted Pony canned will go to Ele’s Place Ann Arbor.
