The United Way of Southern West Virginia will be having an inaugural Kentucky Derby Day event on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at The Resort at Glade Springs. This event will be set in the likeness of Church Hill Downs with a steeple, race track and infield built by the design staff at Glade Springs Resort. It will begin with guests being shuttled from the main hotel to ‘Church Hill Downs’ located at the recreation center. There will be live horses grazing in the gates outside of the rec center as guests arrive. The event will begin with an afternoon pre-party at 4pm where mint juleps, hors d’oeuvres and other adult beverages will be served. The pre-party will be followed by the “Run For The Roses” at 6:30pm – a live viewing of the Kentucky Derby on a jumbo screen. Bravo Live will be the DJ for our guest’s music and dancing pleasure. There will also be an amazing dinner, a best hat and best dressed contest and other race track entertainment for the guests.
