Fletcher's Derby Party


Fletcher’s Derby event is a fundraiser for student programming opportunities and student scholarships.


Join the Fletcher Foundation as we host our fourth annual Kentucky Derby Party on Saturday, May 4, 2024. Enjoy a mint julep or your favorite beverage, and savor the most elegant hors d’oeuvres. Live music by Seth & Gina will echo through the campus, while you pause for a moment with your date at the portrait station.

No Kentucky Derby event is complete without the proper attire. It’s time to pull out all the stops as you acquire or create from scratch your most elegant, yet outrageous, charming, yet outlandish hat to judged. A prize will be awarded, so don’t miss out on this unique contest.
