All proceeds from the event will fund the WEF’s programs for academic enrichment next year.
A Night at the Races includes ten simulated horse races, shown on DVD. You can choose to have your own horse in a race, bet on other horses or even sponsor an entire race. Chip in for a horse with friends, or specify whose horses you would like to race against for more friendly and fun competition.
Ladies – the hats at the Kentucky Derby are nearly as important as the horse racing itself. Get your hats ready for our Hat Contest. Judges will vote on the best, most elaborate hat of the evening, so start shopping or design and craft a hat yourself!
