WURTLAND — Derby party tickets available

WURTLAND - Seating for 16 is available for the Kentucky Derby Party at the McConnell House on Saturday. Two tables of eight for a $140 donation, or individual seats for a donation of $20 are available, said McConnell House president Bud Matheny.

Festivities begin about 4:30 p.m. ahead of the 139th Derby’s 6:24 p.m. post time. For their donation, attendees will be treated to a range of Kentucky-themed refreshments, including Burgoo, ham biscuits, corn muffins, bread pudding, Derby pies and mint juleps. There will be a hat contest, a stick-horse race and other Kentucky-themed events.

The McConnell House has a special permit from the state allowing the party to feature its own betting pool.
