Since 2012 Mom’s Closet has held a fundraiser on the opening night of Churchill Downs’ Spring Meet. It is held the Saturday before the Kentucky Derby. The event has become one of our most successful fundraising opportunities. Our 2018 theme was Top Hats & Tiaras. Guests came dressed with these wonderful hats and tiaras! And the decor was unbelievable! It was an incredible evening filled with fun and laughter, while raising funds for Mom’s Closet Resource Center.
We are planned another exciting evening for April 27, 2019, with the theme of Rising Stars! Evening included entry into the Trophy Room and outside patio, private betting windows and bar service, dinner buffet and racing program. We also had a silent auction and raffle to raise funds to support the single moms we serve.
We sold sold out again this year. People purchased tickets online or sent us a check in the mail to our office at 11921 Brinley Ave., Ste. 101, Louisville, KY 40243. If you need additional information about our events, please email Laura Wingfield at Laura@momsclosetcenter.org.
