Run for the Roses Sponsor
Given the social distancing requirements to combat the spread of COVID-19, along with our commitment to ensuring the health and well-being of all of our guests, Southern Reins has made the decision to transition our Jockeys & Juleps Derby Party to a virtual event. This year, we will host not 1, -but 2 virtual events - as we celebrate the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes!
Difficult circumstances often lead to difficult decisions, and while we realize that we are unable to provide our generous sponsors and amazing guests with the format you have come to expect from our premier fundraiser of the year, we are inspired by the people we serve – who face much greater challenges – to approach obstacles head on, and to explore them as opportunities that can kindle amazing achievement.
This year we will be hosting an amazing online silent and live auction, and bourbon and wine pulls. You can even purchase a Watch Party Package for the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes - OR BOTH - and we will provide you with a celebration box to enjoy for the running of the last two races of the Triple Crown from the comfort of home.
We are immensely grateful to all of our wonderful sponsors for your continued support at a time when it is needed most. Our traditional Jockeys & Juleps Derby Party raises 60% of our operating income, and with a goal to raise $250,000 this year, your support will directly fund the essential services our participants look forward to, and benefit greatly from with each visit to the farm.
Thank you for helping us ride out such a challenging year to continue our mission to change lives through the healing power of horses.
