Off to the Races
On May 3, 2014, the inaugural "Off to the Races" Kentucky Derby event brought 300 guests together to celebrate the pageantry of the “run for the roses” and raise funds for two groundbreaking research institutions: Banner Alzheimer’s Institute and Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center.
Guests at the inaugural event enjoyed an elegant derby day celebration on the lawn at El Chorro, sipped sweet tea and mint juleps and feasted on the finest Southern fare.
A competition for the title of “best dressed” had guests showing off the finest attire this side of the Mississippi. Contest winners include:
• Best Dressed Lady: Jan Levinson
• Best Dressed Man: Dr. Edgardo Rivera
• Best Dressed Couple: Eddie and Larri Levins
• Best Wedge: Deborah Pshebniski
• Best Hat: Sherri Weaver
Banner Health Foundation thanks advisory co-chairs Kari Yatkowski and Suzanne Hilton for their support of the event.
