With the Kentucky Derby only a couple of weeks away, the Best Buddies Kentucky organization is holding a fabulous Derby-inspired fundraiser called High Heels and Hats on Thursday, April 21st.
This unique event is the first of its kind. It will involve more than 300 participants walking 1 mile wearing their high heels and most creative Derby-style hats around the Westport Village Shopping Complex in Louisville. The walk will be concluded by a brunch and awards ceremony. Some of the awards will go to the highest high heels, best hat and even sexiest guy in heels! This event is definitely a team effort and everyone is welcome. The goal is for teams of nine or more to raise the most funds to get a free breakfast for the entire team sponsored by the Westport Village.
The proceeds of High Heels and Hats will go towards Best Buddies Kentucky, an organization dedicated to helping people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Some of our Zappos family out in Shepherdsville, KY are participating in this event as well. Our outlet store next to the Zappos Fulfillment Center even hosted a special outlet shopping incentive to help participants find the best heels for the big day.
If you’re in Louisville this Thursday, be sure to support this wonderful event. Whether you participate or just donate to one of the fundraising teams and cheer them on, this is a great cause and a fun, unique way to get into the spirit of Kentucky Derby season!
