Clark Memorial Gala rolling out pink carpet on Derby eve

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — The sky outside Kye’s in Jeffersonville will be punctuated with search lights and a hot air balloon on Derby Eve, while inside the beat of renowned music and a festive spirit will create the backdrop for partygoers at Clark Memorial Hospital Foundation’s Derby Eve Triumph Gala on Friday, May 4.

The event — Republic Bank Candy Buffet, delectable foods, delivery of White Castles at midnight, signature pink cocktails, photos on the pink carpet, and a silent auction of items, some from Hollywood notables — will benefit women’s health efforts at the hospital.

Tickets are still available for the gala that begins at 7:30 p.m., with a VIP Pre-Event beginning at 6:30 for sponsors and their guests following the running of The Oaks at Churchill Downs. Those arriving from the track for the VIP Pre-Event may freshen up in a complimentary Glam Suite featuring professionals from Clinique and Tranz4mationz Hair Salon with goodie bags for the ladies.

Radio host Jesse Rasmussen of the weekday Lambert & Lindsey Show on 102.3/The Max will serve as emcee. Music by Jamey Aebersold Jazz in the Jazz Lounge/Piano Bar on one side and 100% Poly’s “funky disco band” of ‘70’s and ‘80’s favorites on the other will surround the expected 400 guests in the atmosphere associated the world over with the famous weekend.


All seats are reserved, and tickets are $100 per person for the gala that begins at 7:30 p.m. and $125 per person for the VIP Pre-Event that begins at 6:30 p.m. In addition, round-trip transportation between Kye’s and Churchill Downs for the Oaks that day is available for $50 per person. Those arriving after 10 p.m. may be admitted for $25 at the door.
