Time: 2:30 p.m.
Place: Lake Quivira Country Club
Let's get this party started.
Derby Gala's Diamond Celebration!
Wow, ten years. Time really does fly when you’re having fun. Just ask Deidre and Isabella Pujols: They enjoyed last year’s gala so much, they’re returning as honorary co-chairs this year. Ask anyone who attended last year — the Pujols’ know to how add dash to a party.
A Roeland Park, Kansas native, Deidre is a tireless advocate for people with developmental disabilities. Deidre and her husband, Albert Pujols (first baseman for the Los Angeles Angels) have five children. Isabella, their oldest daughter, is a vibrant young woman with Down syndrome.
Speaking of returning, how many Derby Day galas have you attended? You’ll be asked when you register because we’ll be recognizing those who have joined us in the past, as well as our past honorary chairs. Also new this year is our Diamond Celebration, a meet and greet with Deidre and Isabella before the event.
And as always, you’ll enjoy first-class food and libations while “betting” on the race and participating in the silent and live auctions. We’re working hard to offer new and exciting auction items this year. Strut your stuff, and you just might win an award for Best Hat or Best Dressed.
