Imagine this: you look fabulous, relaxed after a day at the spa, a Mint Julep in one hand and a tasty hors d’oeuvre in the other; you’re surrounded by friends, taking in stunning Adirondack views under a tent watching the Kentucky Derby. Your children are home with the babysitter, eating a dinner you didn’t make and having a grand time….. This can your reality come Saturday, read on for more details.
If your upcoming travel plans do not include a visit to the infield at Churchill Downs in Louisville for the 141ˢᵗ running of the Kentucky Derby, then plan to come to Cornwall on Saturday afternoon, May 2ⁿd, for the annual “Kentucky Derby Day Party” sponsored by the Porter Medical Center Auxiliary.
