Downs After Dark

Downs After Dark, a celebration of the finals days of summer and the welcome of fall, was held at Churchill Downs on September 18, featuring live music by A Lion Named Roar on the Paddock Stage and a performance of the national anthem by Kentucky Opera soprano Jennifer Poff. Guests had a chance to get autographs from legendary UofL basketball players Darrell Griffith and Tim Henderson. The two rallied to raise money for raiseRED, a UofL student organization benefiting pediatric cancer.
