The Julep

The Julep Ball 2014

As one of the longest running Derby weekend fundraisers, The Julep Ball has set the standard for Derby entertainment and revelry. We’re going to rock your socks off in 2014 with one of the nation’s most exciting dance bands – The Bob Hardwick Sound. This 16-piece band promises to keep the dance floor packed and hopping for FOUR straight hours! The evening will also be peppered with special musical guest stars, starting with Nashville recording artist, J.D. Shelburne. Julep Ball guests will also enjoy plentiful libations from numerous open specialty bars, a tantalizing multi-course dinner, and multiple auctions featuring one-of-a-kind items – all on the main floor at the KFC Yum! Center, an environment very few people get to experience. Come prepared to party, but leave the tux and formal gowns at home. Cocktail attire is the dress of the night!

Proceeds from The Julep Ball go to support the James Graham Brown Cancer Center – Louisville’s premier and ONLY clinical and translational research facility. In addition, a portion of the evening’s income directly supports the Harriett B. Porter Endowment, which helps bridge the healthcare gap in our community by providing better access to cancer screening and education in underserved areas of Louisville.
