SPECIAL KENTUCKY OAKS ONLY TICKETS PUT ON SALE
LOUISVILLE, KY (Wednesday, April 27, 2011) – Thanks to a special partnership among three groups associated with the “Ladies First” theme of Kentucky Oaks Day, a select number of one-day only tickets for Friday, May 6 in Section 125 were put on sale for $74 on Wednesday afternoon. The tickets are available exclusively online on a first-come, first-serve basis at http://www.churchilldowns.com/oaksonly.
There is a purchase limit of six seats per person while supplies last. Minimal ticket processing charges will apply.
In addition to Komen, other groups who helped make the reserved seats available are Horses & Hope and Chambord.
Horses & Hope was founded in 2008 by Kentucky First Lady Jane Beshear and the Kentucky Cancer Program to identify new opportunities to provide breast cancer awareness, education and early detection through screening and treatment referral, as well as to raise funds to sustain programs into the future.
The Chambord Kentucky Oaks Fashion Contest is open to all ladies in attendance on Oaks Day with the winner receiving an all-expense VIP trip for two to Fashion Week in New York City. For each person who walks the “Pink Carpet,” Chambord will donate $10 to the National Breast Cancer Coalition. Iconic fashion designer Betsey Johnson will serve as a judge for the final, which will take place inside the Aristides Garden between the seventh and eighth races at approximately 2:15 p.m. ET.
