Wellspring Derby Preview Party

The 17th annual event, which took place April 21 at Churchill Downs’ Millionaires Row, featured an unlimited chef’s table, a dessert bar and cocktail bar, and entertainment by Latin-infused roots band Appalatin. The party benefited Wellspring, which provides housing and hope for adults experiencing a psychiatric crisis or mental illness.
