Since 2014, the community has come together around Make-A-Wish® Central and Western North Carolina’s annual Kentucky Derby Classic. Now in its fourth year, the sell-out event hosts more than 400 guests for dinner and a derby celebration, from a variety of business and social circles in the Greensboro and surrounding regions.
The event begins with a cocktail hour, complete with silent auction, “betting”, raffle opportunities, and more. As the time to view the Kentucky Derby draws near, guests will enjoy an elegant buffet, music and 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 life-threatening medical conditions in our community.
