Grab a mint julep and get ready to watch the Kentucky Derby as The Care Communities hosts a Derby Day Party and Edgar Gierbolini is here with the details. Gary Schumann from the LGBT Bar Association visits the studio to talk about a Big Gay Fundraiser for State Representative Celia Israel on Cinco de Mayo.


The first major event for The Care Communities’s 25th year is Derby Day 2016! Not only is it the perfect time to enjoy southern hors d’oeuvres and sip on a Mint Julep while viewing the Kentucky Derby, but it is also perfect to enjoy some yard games with old friends under the Texas sun. An old-school silent auction and a silent auction with-a-twist will be open, as well as a raffle for a trip to Disneyland (4 park tickets & hotel stay) and a custom-made superhero costume for a special child! Additionally, no Kentucky Derby event would be complete without a derby hat contest for the Most Glamorous and Most Outrageous. Etter-Harbin Alumni Center, University of Texas at Austin, 2110 San Jacinto Blvd, Austin TX 78712. Saturday, May 7, 2016, 4:30 – 7 PM CDT.
