Tickets are now on sale for the Fourth Annual Rotary Club of Knoxville's Jockeys & Juleps Derby Party on Saturday, May 5, 2018! It'll be Derby de Mayo!

Jockeys & Juleps is a Derby-styled party benefitting the Rotary Foundation of Knoxville. The Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization that provides funding for college scholarships and both local & international service projects.

Last year the Rotary Foundation of Knoxville awarded over $25,000 in scholarships to deserving Knox County school students. It also sponsored projects like an after-school reading program at Beaumont Elementary School, provided nearly 25,000 meals to hungry East Tennessee children & construction of a dam to help farmers in Zimbabwe become self-sustaining.

This year’s event is being held at Lighthouse Knoxville (6800 Baum Drive) and begins at 3:00 p.m.

Throughout the afternoon there will be fun activities including: bourbon tasting; a ladies' hat contest; a contest for the best bow tie and more! Tickets are $100 each and include a heavy hors d’oeuvres buffet & 2 drink tickets.

Sponsorship opportunities available!

Derby attire is a must! Bring a friend and share this fun annual event!
