The Day Spring Foundation’s annual “Concrete Ball” will be held May 19 at the Downtown Marriott, 280 W. Jefferson St.
The Concrete Ball, named for a substance that is a symbol of strength and stability, is held each year to raise financial support for Day Spring, the Louisville-based community that empowers adults with intellectual disabilities to live in a supported, residential setting.
The year’s theme for the event is “Off to the Races.” A cocktail hour will begin at 6 p.m. and include a silent auction. A “Kentucky Derby style” dinner will begin at 7:30 p.m., according to a news release from Day Spring. And music and dancing will be held from 8:30 p.m. to midnight.
Throughout the evening there will be a live auction and various games of chance. There will also be a “Ladies Best Derby Hat” contest and a “Best Dressed Gentleman’s” contest.
Raffle tickets will be sold at $10 apiece with a jackpot of $15,000. For information, call 636-5990, ext. 208.
