About Unbridled Eve

2024 Unbridled Eve Derby Gala

The Unbridled Eve Derby Gala is a world-class event that you will want to make an annual Derby weekend tradition!

This black-tie optional celebration is an unparalleled party showcasing southern grace, glamour, charm and hospitality.  The Gala kicks off with a cocktail reception featuring dazzling specialty bars serving fine wines, champagnes and custom cocktails specially created for the event by top mixologists. 

More than 1,000 attendees experience a glamourous red carpet with celebrity guests and VIPs, from sports, music, TV, movie, poker, publishing and horse racing.

The evening includes a plated gourmet dinner and a silent auction with more than 100 coveted items and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.  Past auction offerings include a VIP Indy 500 experience, a CNN VIP studio tour with Robin Meade, a Dallas Cowboys VIP package, a New York Fashion Week package and tickets to the final round of the Masters in Augusta, Georgia.

Guests are entertained by top names in the music industry, then dance late into the night with The Louisville Crashers and world-renowned DJ’s.

All of this fun helps benefit a number of charitable causes, including the 2024 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.
