A festive way to watch the Derby while enjoying a day of food, mint juleps, contests and the opportunity to give back to local nonprofit, LifeRoots.
What better way to celebrate the Kentucky Derby than a day of thundering excitement, refreshing Mint Juleps, larger-than-life hats and fundraising? The 2nd Annual Hunter Chase Realty Kentucky Derby Fundraiser will be offering the community a festive way to watch the Derby while enjoying a day of great food, delicious beverages, exciting contests – and the opportunity to “give back” to a local not-for-profit organization.
The 2nd Annual Hunter Chase Realty Kentucky Derby Fundraiser will take place on Saturday, May 4th from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. at the Banque Lofts Rooftop at 219 Central Ave NW. The event will be raising money for LifeROOTS, the local not-for-profit organization which since 1958 has provided services for people with disabilities in central New Mexico. Money raised through this community event will enable LifeROOTS to continue its work in providing parenting classes, therapeutic services for children and support to adults with disabilities.
In addition to finger foods, drinks and Derby-watching on large screen television in a beautiful setting, the event will feature a DJ, casino games and luxury raffle prizes. The afternoon will also include a number of fun contests, with awards being presented for Best Hat, Best Outfit and Most Facebook Likes. A VIP 3rd Floor Party (from noon – 2 p.m.) and After-Party Bar Walk will also be taking place that day.
General admission to the Kentucky Derby Fundraiser is $50, which includes entrance into the party and $100.00 of casino vouchers (additional vouchers available for purchase). Entrance to the separate VIP party is $150.00, which includes access to a private condo (the entire 3rd floor), cocktails and appetizers, as well as hair and make-up artists to get you ready for the party! The VIP party option also includes $200 worth of casino chips and a professional photo-digital print.
