Ferdinand’s Ball is an annual fundraiser created in honor of the 1986 Kentucky Derby winner Ferdinand. You will join celebrities, athletes, jockeys and community leaders at this elaborate red carpet gala. The gala raises funds for Old Friends, a thoroughbred retirement community in Georgetown, KY founded and created by Michael Blowen.

Our clients will receive VIP Admission to Ferdinand’s Ball which includes VIP area access, special drinks and appetizers (in addition to the ones for the entire event) and a VIP gift bag. The VIP area access will be the exclusive area where our celebrity guests will have access to as well. As a VIP guest, you can move freely between the main area, the VIP area and the rooftop garden. Only those with VIP bands will be able to gain entrance into the VIP area.

Dress Code:

  • Derby attire is welcome, including Derby hats
  • Suggested attire for women is a cocktail dress and for men a tie
  • We really want everyone to wear what makes them feel best!
