Talk Derby to Me

You are invited to join the Fairbanks LGBTA community on May 1 for an afternoon of Kentucky Derby, mint juleps, a little touch of Southern fabulousness and horse racing, all for a good cause.

We'll have mimosas and two different types of mint juleps, plus snack food. Everything else is bring your own. We also have contests: wear the most fabulous hat imaginable and win a prize. Every attendee will have $100 of "play money" to bet on the actual horse race. The Derby will be on at 2 p.m. Alaska time, and we'll have a TV set on so we can watch the action. Whoever wins the most money wins the fabulous Kentucky Derby pie generously donated by Erica Iseri. Of course, for those who lose the most, we have our traditional bottle of Kentucky Bourbon as a consolation prize.

The Kentucky Derby Party is a fund raiser for Alaskans Together for Equality, Inc., Alaska's only statewise LGBTQ civil rights organization. There is a suggested donation at the door of $10-$25, and we will also be offering a 50-50 raffle, among other things, to raise money for this worthwhile cause. The suggested donation is not a requirement to get in. There will be plenty of information about Alaskans Together at the party.

The Derby party is on Saturday, May 1 from 12:30pm-3:30pm at the Cafe Alex building, 310 1st Avenue Fairbanks Alaska. Ages 21 and over only, please (this was a requirement to use the space.)

We hope you can join us - its a great excuse to be a little fabulous on a Saturday afternoon while raising money for a good cause.
