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 2017 theme was Moonlight Masquerade. Guests came dressed wearing fabulous masks in a beautifully decorated room. It was an incredible evening filled with fun and laughter, while raising funds for Mom’s Closet Resource Center.

We are planning another exciting evening for April 28, 2018, titled “Top Hats and Tiaras”!  It will be held Opening Night at Churchill Downs. Evening includes entry into the Trophy Room and outside patio, private betting windows and bar service, dinner buffet and racing program. We will also have a silent auction and raffle to raise funds to support the single moms we serve.

Last year we sold out, so we urge guests to purchase their tickets as soon as possible.  You can purchase online below.  Or you can send us a check in the mail to our new office location at 11921 Brinley Ave., Ste. 101, Louisville, KY  40243.  If you need additional information, please email Laura Wingfield at
