The eight annual Big Hats Big Hearts Kentucky Derby party and fundraiser to support the Paradise Center for the Arts in downtown Faribault will be Saturday, May 6, from 4-7PM.

Big Hats Big Hearts serves as a fundraiser for the Paradise Center for the Arts, and hosts a silent auction followed by a live auction, both with a great range of products, services and experiences. In the past, some of the items that have come up for bid are pottery classes, passes to the museums, tickets to future events at the Paradise Center for the Arts, meals prepared by local celebrities, wine, tickets to the Chanhassen Dinner Theater and the Guthrie Theater, gift cards, a watch, handmade quilts, getaway packages and much more.

Be sure to wear your sport coat and a big hat, because much like at Churchill Downs, the attendees have fun and get dressed to the nines and boast fabulous hats. Some of the hats are amazing! Don’t miss this chance to take in the auction items, peruse the art gallery and sip a mint julep before watching the greatest two minutes in sports.
