Kentucky Derby Viewing Party hosted at the Mezz in Orlando – a Great Success!

horsesHats, Horses and Hope! Thank you to everyone for helping us put together our First Annual Derby Viewing Party: Hats, Horses & Hope; what a beautiful evening it was!

No matter which horse was crowned the champion on Derby Day (“Always Dreaming” for all you Derby enthusiasts); the Alzheimer’s Association took the ultimate prize!

The Hats, Horses & Hope party was a festive and exciting occasion where participants enjoyed watching the Kentucky Derby and did a little friendly betting for prizes, while raising funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s programs and support services in our area.

We are so grateful for all the support and time our local volunteers and partners have given to make this important event possible!
