Celebrate with us during the Kentucky Derby to honor all that you have done and everything that we will do together in the year to come!  We hope you will join us to connect and enjoy an evening of lite bites, a live and silent auction, and much more while raising critical funds to support the work of SPUR.  We promise it will be an unforgettable evening.  So dust off your favorite fascinator and get your tickets now for what is sure to be the spring's best party!

Increase your impact and ensure SPUR's continued success by supporting us at a individual giving level or becoming a corporate sponsor! Click below to see our current sponsors. 

As part of the festivities, we will be hosting a fascinator contest for the night's hippest headpiece. If you are looking for unique custom millinery for the evening's big event, we have partnered with local artist Linda Mullen of Grace and Diggs who creates fabulous fashions out of repurposed materials. Her custom hats for the Gala start at $40, a portion of which is generously donated back to SPUR. See some of her chic custom creations here. Contact Linda at  to learn more.
