Ride to the Derby for a Cure in style... check

Exactly ONE MONTH from today we'll be sipping mint juleps and cheering for our horse to win the race! What better way to kickoff the countdown than announcing a win for our attendees?!

We are happy to announce that we've partnered with Uber for this year's derby party. This means everybody gets $20 off their Uber rides to and fro the Derby for a Cure.

If you've already purchased tickets, you will be receiving your Uber discount code shortly. If you haven't purchased your tickets yet, purchase your ticket now and your Uber code will be sent to you shortly after.
