Kentucky Derby 2010 — Hats, Horses and Fun!

We had a great day at the Mom's closet Resouce Center fundraiser luncheon at Churchill Downs.
Rhonda and I "won" Beijo Bags at the silent auction.
We thought the red went perfectly with black and white attire. 
Lisa is buying a grab bag for $10.  The items in the grab bags were valued $15 to $100.
We each picked a horse for $5 in the third race "split-the-pot" pool.  A lady at our table won. 
These MCRC volunteers were selling $20 raffle tickets for this beautiful necklace.


Barbara, Lisa, Lisa's friend, Judy, Mary, Rhonda and I had a super time. Of our group, only Ronda came out ahead on the horse races.  (Yes, there were horse races, too.)
