Event Info:

Make-A-Wish® Central and Western North Carolina is thrilled to host our fifth annual The Kentucky Derby Classic on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at High Caliber Stables in Greensboro, N.C.

We would like to invite you, your neighbors and your organization to partner in our mission by being a part of this much anticipated community event. and sponsor the Kentucky Derby Classic.

The afternoon takes place in a beautiful setting and includes music, spirits, southern cuisine, live and silent auction, and “betting”. And of course the afternoon wouldn’t be complete without the featured live stream of all the action at Churchill Downs.

Most important, The Kentucky Derby Classic is an afternoon of charitable giving, raising funds to grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses in our community.
