DERBY DARLINS FAQs
Several questions have been asked that we would like to take the time to answer.....
While the event is alcohol free and the atmosphere is kid friendly, we would prefer the amount of kids in attendance be minimal. We want everyone that has paid for a ticket to enjoy the event without a child that may have a tantrum. If you don't have a babysitter, please don't let that stop you from attending. Each kid will cost the normal ticket price of $35 each.
YES! The 2020 event is geared more to the ladies with our hats and vendors. There will be silent auction items the men may be interested in. We are testing the waters this year with the event, but next years event may include men's hats, suspenders, or bow ties. We have male models for this years event and several tickets have been sold to men. By all means, drag your men along!! The men will love the appetizers and desserts being provided!
3.) DRESS ATTIRE?
Business Casual to Semi-Formal (pant suits, dress pants, and blouse to flowy dresses and derby attire) is acceptable. Preferably no jeans and t-shirts.
4.) CAN I WEAR A DERBY HAT?
We request that you NOT wear a derby hat so there is no confusion on the hats that will be auctioned off. LET'S HAVE FUN!!
