About Unbridled Eve

Come experience a night of Southern grace, glamour, charm and hospitality at its finest during the fifth annual Unbridled Eve Gala

Held on Derby Eve, this black tie-optional event begins with an amazing cocktail reception featuring fantastic specialty bars serving fine wines, champagnes, bourbons, vodkas and custom cocktails provided by Champion sponsor Southern Wine & Spirits brand partners.

You can mingle with celebs and other VIPs from the sports, music, TV, movie, poker, literary and horse racing worlds after their red carpet entrance. We expect more than 30 special celebrity guests to join us this year.

Over 100 impressive silent auction items will be up for grabs, as well as some incredible live auction items—which in the past have included a VIP Indy 500 experience, private poker lesson with poker legend Phil Hellmuth, tickets to the LA Lakers Owners’ Box for a game, a Masters golf package and more!

You will enjoy a gourmet dinner in the stunningly decorated Galt House Hotel Grand Ballroom, enjoy a variety of live entertainment provided by celebrity musical guests, and dancing to the always crowd-pleasing Louisville Crashers.

It is truly a world-class event that you will want to make an annual Derby weekend tradition!

All of this fun ultimately goes to help numerous great causes, including the 2015 primary beneficiary, Blessings in a Backpack, an organization that fights childhood hunger by providing needy elementary school students a backpack of food on the weekends. A portion of proceeds will also go to ten other non-profit organizations.

The Unbridled Eve Charitable Foundation® and Unbridled Eve® were founded by Tonya York Dees and Tammy York Day. Their experience in creating world-class non-profit and charity events is long and varied.

We hope to see you at Unbridled Eve 2017!
