The Unbridled Eve Gala, Louisville’s star-studded Kentucky Derby Eve event, is proud to announce award-winning and Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Robin Thicke will be joining a list of talented performers on Friday, May 6 at the Galt House Hotel Grand Ballroom.
For the first time, Unbridled Eve Gala has partnered with President and CEO of Manna, Inc. and former NBA player Junior Bridgeman, whose well-known Derby parties have long drawn A-list names in sports, music and film. The partnership between Unbridled and Bridgeman was key in bringing Thicke, whose Blurred Lines topped 13 international charts and has sold more than seven million copies in the United States, to the Gala. Also slated to perform are Wynonna Judd, John Elefante (former lead singer of band Kansas), Dennis DeYoung (founder and former lead singer of band Styx). Other VIPs and celebrities will be announced a later date.
“The Unbridled Eve Gala has quickly become a Derby tradition, exemplifying the excitement and elegance of the entire celebration,” said Tammy York Day and Tonya York Dees, co-founders of the Unbridled Eve Gala and the Unbridled Eve Charitable Foundation, Inc. “Junior Bridgeman is synonymous with success both in Louisville and nationwide, and we are pleased that he will help us extend the Gala’s reach in order to bring more awareness and support to our charity beneficiaries.”
Prior Gala attendees include Sarah Hyland, Luke Bryan, Lauren Conrad, Lance Bass, Dennis Haysbert, Jane Seymour, and Triple Crown winning jockey Victor Espinoza.
In addition to the celebrities and live musical performances, guests will enjoy the spectacular Southern Wine & Spirits specialty bars serving craft cocktails made by the very best mixologists and bartenders in the area. Featured brands include Maker’s Mark, Knob Creek, Basil Hayden and Four Roses Bourbons; Svedka, Effen and Grey Goose Vodkas; Nolet Gin; Casa Noble and Espolon Tequilas; Constellation Brand wines, Moet Champagne and Mumm Champagne. The event also features an amazing silent auction with one-of-a-kind experiences and items.
Proceeds from the Unbridled Eve Derby Gala will go to the Unbridled Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, with primary beneficiary being Blessings In A Backpack, which feeds nearly 76,000 children in 800 schools in 44 U.S. states. The Unbridled Charitable Foundation also supports more than fifteen other worthy charitable recipients.
The top-level “Champion” sponsors are Delta Dental of Kentucky and Southern Wine & Spirits. Other sponsors include Churchill Downs, Cigna, Wayne and Kathy Richards, Sun Tan City/Planet Fitness, The Nora Roberts Foundation and Papa John’s International.
