Silks In The Bluegrass

Following the 139th Run for the Roses, men and women flocked from the track to the Crowne Plaza Hotel for the annual Silks in the Bluegrass.

The event benefited Operation Open Arms, a Louisville-based non-profit organization founded by Cathy and Irv Bailey that provides care for children whose mothers are incarcerated. Silks in the Bluegrass included cocktails, dinner and a performance from Valerie Simpson, singer and songwriter of famed duo Ashford & Simpson. Miss America 2013, Mallory Hagan, was a featured guest in cooperation with Boys and Girls Haven, which provides a home and a future for abandoned, abused and neglected children.
