Derby Day at GaitWay

The thunder of galloping hooves, the taste of mint juleps, and the sight of lavish wide-brimmed hats can mean only one thing—the Kentucky Derby. On the first Saturday of May, GaitWay Farms will host a spectacular afternoon celebrating the fastest two minutes in sports. Dine on spectacular southern fare while enjoying a “Derby” libation. We will be auctioning off a once in a lifetime experience to attend the 145th Kentucky Derby.

All proceeds from Derby Day fund critical projects and provide scholarships to those who cannot afford our life altering services. Our services allow our most vulnerable members of our community to HEAL. We have a waiting list, and without your generous donation, those waiting will have to keep waiting.

Individual tickets can be purchased using the link below at $150 per person. This ticket will include an access to an open bar, a buffet, and access to our auctions and raffles.
