Dear Friend of St. Anthony’s:
When we re-scheduled the Derby Gala to September 5th, to coincide with the re-scheduled Kentucky Derby we fully anticipated that the Coronavirus pandemic would have abated to the degree that social occasions would resume. Unfortunately, the news of late has not been positive and in an abundance of caution, we have decided to cancel the gala this year. We intend to hold the gala next spring either on the traditional day of the Kentucky Derby (May 1, 2021) or to coincide with the running of the Preakness Stakes on May 15, 2021 which has its own storied traditions and pageantry. If you have questions regarding tickets you've already purchased or sponsorships, please do not hesitate to reach out.
You are an important part of St. Anthony’s mission and we sincerely appreciate your support and know that you can understand our decision. Wishing you safety and good health as we work together to end this pandemic.
