Day at the Races

Thursday, April 20

11:30 am

Keeneland Race Course

Our annual “Keeneland Day at the Races” was launched in 1983 as a fundraiser to finance the groundbreaking of RMHC of the Bluegrass.

Held in the Keeneland Room, guests enjoy one of the most stunning views of the race track. Located on the 5th floor and complete with a private patio, this room is a fit for a queen – literally 😉

Complemented by great food and even better company, this is a great event to see and be seen while partaking in one of Lexington’s favorite past times: A Day at the Races!

McDazzle is our most important fundraising event held annually that enables us to continue our programs to benefit children and their families from the Bluegrass and beyond.

The 2023 McDazzle Gala & Auction will be held on the evening of Friday, November 17th at the beautiful Keeneland Entertainment Center & Keene Barn with over 500 people in attendance. The evening features Live Entertainment, an elegant menu, an exciting live and silent auction, and a special tribute to our 2023 Elizabeth Carey Nahra Legacy of Love Award honoree.
