GLBC Hosts Annual Kentucky Derby Party

Posted May 2, 2012

For over ten years, Great Lakes Brewing Company has proudly sponsored and hosted West Side Ecumenical Ministry's (WSEM) annual Kentucky Derby Party. This year's Derby Party will take place on Saturday, May 5th. The event will benefit WSEM Food Centers, which provide meals for more than 43,000 individuals in addition to providing over 19,000 outreach and supportive services to families and children.

The party will take place in the GLBC Tasting Room. Guests are encouraged to sport their Derby best, be it seersucker suits or elegant hats.

Guests will have the opportunity to participate in reverse and lucky choice raffles and a silent auction with prizes generously donated by local businesses, including an iPad 3. Attendants can also bet on their favorite horse--at GLBC we like the horse named, "I'll Have Another".

The "mane" event will be projected live so everyone in attendance can have a front-row seat to the excitement and spectacle of the Derby.

Authentic Derby hors d'oeuvres will be served, along with mint juleps and, of course, Great Lakes Brewing Company's handcrafted lagers and ales.

Tickets for the event are $60. For more information, call 216-651-2037 or visit the WSEM website at
