The Kentucky Derby is just around the corner, and most of us can't be there, but the Owensboro Symphony Alliance and Orchestra has the next best thing. The 3rd Annual Juleps and Jockeys is set for this Saturday, May 5th aka Derby Day 4pm-9pm at the Hines Center in Philpot.

All the Derby amenities make this a great event. Valet parking, mint juleps, a bourbon bar, cigar tent, Kentucky Derby Buffet Dinner, and live and silent auctions will be included. The 2nd St. Big Band will provide live music for dancing 7p-9p. What's left? Well the Run for the Roses of course. Two 14 ft. screens will show all the action from Churchill Downs.

Tickets for the event are $45 per person for box seats. Or you can go big time with the Millionaires Row option: a reserved table for eight, preferred seating, special amenities, transportation to and from the event and a Derby gift bag for $100 per person, so $800 for a table of eight.

Tickets are going fast! Please contact the Symphony office at (270) 684-0661 for tickets and more information.
