Derby Poker Championship Celebrity Bourbon Bash

Poker legends Phil Hellmuth, Robert Williamson III and Hall of Fame Cardinal basketball coach Denny Crum hosted the 2014 Derby Poker Championship Bourbon Bash, held May 1 at The Olmsted. Produced by Southern Gaming Magazine and sponsored by Jim Beam and Twinspires.com, guests enjoyed an evening of music and dancing, performing artists, food, a premium open bar and an exciting poker tournament with some of the best poker players in the world.

The event benefited Blessings in a Backpack, a local nonprofit that provides weekend meals to disadvantaged children, and the Thoroughbred Charities of America, a charity that raises and distributes money to charitable organizations in thoroughbred rescue, retirement and adoption, research, education and backstretch and therapeutic riding programs.
