9th Annual Kentucky Derby Auction & Dinner
May 6, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The 9th Annual Kentucky Derby Auction and Dinner benefiting Storybook Farm will be on May 6, 2017 from 4 -8 p.m.
Looking for a place to don extravagant hats, sip mint juleps, enjoy cuisine from the finest restaurants from Opelika/Auburn, and watch the Kentucky Derby around the same four-legged creatures that inspire “The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports”? Look no further than Storybook Farm. You can enjoy all of this in Opelika, AL, while supporting a great cause at the same time. Be inspired by distinguished guest speakers, Tim and Kim Hudson, and get your game-face on for the live auction and giveaways!
With support from events such as the Kentucky Derby Dinner and Auction, Storybook Farm is able to continually provide equine assisted activities for more than 1,000 children annually at no cost to the participating families. Storybook Farm’s mission is to walk alongside children with uncertain futures and provide them with unyielding joy and hope.
Storybook Farm serves children ages two to young adulthood who face obstacles such as autism, cerebral palsy, cognitive delays, sensory integration issues and bereavement situations to name a few. Horseback riding provides physical benefits such as improvements to balance, motor skills, muscle strength and coordination. Storybook Farm is a place where children can experience the exhilaration of riding horses and where families can come together to support one another.
