Derby Divas

Derby Divas, a night of shopping, fun and friendship, took place April 16 at Rodes For Him and For Her. The annual event benefits the Norton Cancer Institute Breast Health Program and supports the cost of mammograms for underserved women in the Louisville area. Along with high fashion, food and refreshments, this year’s event featured internationally famous hatmaker Christine Moore and a raffle ticket sale. The grand prize was a Blackberry Farm getaway for two.
