14th Annual Event scheduled for April 20 at Triple Crown Conference Center
Hats for Hope will once again partner with Kosair Charities for a signature pre-Derby silent auction cocktail event, which will be held April 20, 2017 at the Triple Crown Conference Center located at 1776 Plantside Drive in Louisville.
Over the past 13 years, Hats for Hope has raised well over a half million dollars by auctioning new and gently worn designer Kentucky Derby hats, as well as high end auction items including gift baskets, jewelry, gift certificates, trips and more.
In addition to the silent auction, guests will enjoy hors d’oeuvres, a complimentary cocktail or soda, and desserts. Beyond this, a cash bar will be available. Attendees will also enjoy trying on hats and posing for photographs with their friends.
“We will have 300+ of our best Derby hats available for auction as well as gift packages and tickets to favorite sporting events. Tickets are available online starting today, and we recommended that ticket purchases be made early,” stated Ann Mudge, the fundraiser’s Chair. Tickets are $30 in advance or $40 the day of the event.

Hats for Hope has grown from a small group of volunteers creating a corporate fundraiser to a premier event and Louisville tradition to kick-off the Derby season. Last year, the event raised $65,500 in support of the fight against cancer.
The event celebrates survivorship, friendship, fashion and fun. In recent years, event proceeds have supported primarily breast cancer patient care; however, this is the second year we will be expanding our scope to support families and children affected by cancer. Kosair Charities has agreed to partner with Hats for Hope in order to carry the fundraiser well into the future.
