The Operation Open Arms Silks Bash Charity Event Moves to New Date
Derby Eve - September 4th, 2020
Silks Derby Eve Bash, the annual fundraising event for Operation Open Arms, announced that its event will move to September 4th this year to coincide with the rescheduling of the 2020 Kentucky Derby.
The 12th annual Silks Derby Eve Bash will be on Friday, September 4th, at historic Locust Grove in Louisville, KY. The charity made its decision as Churchill Downs announced it would delay the Kentucky Derby from May 2 to September 4 because of concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic.
"The children we help were born into challenging circumstances. The challenge of moving our event pales by comparison," said Cathy Bailey, co-founder of Operation Open Arms. "Though we continue to share in the nation's concerns regarding the coronavirus, the promise of the future provides us encouragement and hope. All of us at Operation Open Arms stand in solidarity with Churchill Downs as the entire community works together to support Louisville's most celebrated tradition and the longest running sporting event in the United States."
The opportunity to purchase tickets is still available on our website until noon of September 3rd.
