Date: Saturday, July 22, 2017
Time: Reception and hors d'oeuvres at 6:00 pm; dinner served at 7:00 pm
Location: Keeneland Entertainment Center and Keene Barn

Join us for an evening of dining, drinks, and dancing at the Keeneland Entertainment Center! Nestled in the heart of Keeneland's sprawling pastures, the Entertainment Center combines elegance and comfort with the equine history and rustic Kentucky feel that make Keeneland so unique. The Keene Barn reception area was once a working horse barn; the stone facade and sweeping rafters are a nod to its past life.

Tickets go on sale June 1, with special Lucky Dog pricing for through June 15! Reserve a table for your party or purchase tickets individually.

The Summer Gala features a mouth-watering buffet style dinner catered by Keeneland Hospitality and a full cash bar. During the reception, guests can mingle, enjoy hors d'oeuvres, and browse our silent auction, featuring a range of items from racing memorabilia to local art and everything in between. After dinner is served, auctioneer Chuck McKee of Bluegrass Auction and Appraisal will lead a live auction of our most enticing items.

The close of the live auction brings the evening's scripted events to an end, but not the festivities! Guests are encouraged to stay, enjoy live music courtesy of the Twiggenburys, and hit the dance floor until 11:00 pm.

Requested dress is cocktail attire. Guests may want to dress for the summer heat, but the Keeneland Entertainment Center is air conditioned to keep us cool and comfortable.
