Help us stirrup some funds for Food Rescue of Northwest Michigan!

On May 5, join us at The Corner Loft and don your seersucker suits and wide-brimmed hats for a Kentucky Derby party, Traverse City-style! Watch the Kentucky Derby, enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres from the Boathouse Restaurant , and sip a mint julep from the open bar.

Join us for a fun evening in Downtown Traverse City and support Food Rescue

About Food Rescue:

Food Rescue believes that everyone deserves access to fresh, wholesome food.
10 years and over 8 million pounds later, we continue our mission to increase access to this fundamental need in our community.

Food Rescue’s approach has a win-win-win outcome: nutritious food lands on the dinner plates of people who need it; good food stays out of northern Michigan landfills; local pantries and meal programs realize tremendous cost savings by reducing the number of processed foods purchased to stock their shelves.

Your ticket purchase helps support this critical community service.

A huge thank you to our 2018 Derby Party sponsors:
