This past May, I was lucky to attend not only the Kentucky Derby and its fun events, but also the celebrity-studded evening gala, the Barnstable Brown Derby Eve Bash.
Known for its celebrity guests and amazing musical performances, the Barnstable Brown party was truly an unforgettable evening of dancing, chatting with celebs, snapping pictures, and enjoying live music until the early hours of the morning. I still can’t believe I was there to soak it all in!
Although this elite party is known for its elaborate festivities and impressive guest list, the Derby eve gala also donated $13M for diabetes research to the University of Kentucky’s Barnstable Brown Kentucky Diabetes and Obesity Center over the past decade. As a huge supporter of charity myself, I was so happy to be apart of this event while contributing to a good cause.
Throughout the evening, I was stunned by the many familiar faces, and was even more amazed to have spoken with a few of them!
So many of my idols in entertainment and sports were there, including Larry David, Kacey Musgraves, and Tom Brady, who were (for the most part), socializing and having fun with everyone, which made me feel so happy and welcome to be there.
If this year was any indication, the Barnstable Brown is a truly magnificent gala that I look forward to attending in the years to come!
