Since 2014, the Triad community has come together to celebrate Make-A-Wish® Central and Western North Carolina’s annual Kentucky Derby Classic. Now in its fifth year, this exciting sell-out event hosts more than 400 guests from a variety of business and social circles in the area for an afternoon of granting wishes and derby celebration.
The event begins with a cocktail hour, complete with silent auction, “betting”, photo booth, mint juleps, and more. As the time to cheer on your favored steed draws near, you will enjoy fabulous food selections provided by local favorite chefs, hat and ensemble contests, and unique opportunities to witness the Power of a Wish® live!
Most important, The Kentucky Derby Classic is an evening of charitable giving, raising much needed funds toward granting the wishes of children with critical illnesses in our community.
