Derby Days Heritage Edition – Young Affiliates of the Mint
May 7 @ 3:00 PM - 7:00 PM
The Young Affiliates of the Mint bring you to the 31st Annual Derby Days-Heritage Edition!
Derby Days brings together Charlotte’s young professionals to enjoy a day of live music, lawn games, signature cocktails including the classic mint julep, food trucks, Kentucky Derby raffle, and a viewing of the Kentucky Derby dubbed “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports.”
This year’s event will be held at the Cooper Gardens in Charlotte and mixes in a bit of Derby Days heritage. Hillary Cooper, chief advancement officer at The Mint Museum, and her husband Fairfax Cooper, a member of the first Derby Days committee and former YAM President, have graciously opened their beautiful grounds to the YAMs for this year’s event.
Derby Days has been recognized by “Charlotte Agenda,” “Charlotte Magazine,” “Charlotte Style,” “Scoop Charlotte.” And “CharlotteFive” has ranked the Young Affiliates of the Mint as one of the Top 10 YP Organization in Charlotte.
Proceeds raised at the event will sponsor free tours at The Mint Museum for Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools students to inspire a new generation of artists, art enthusiasts, and leaders.
