Oxford Kids Foundation Derby Gala 2024


Join us for an unforgettable evening at The Oxford Center in Brighton, Michigan, on May 4th, 2024, for the Oxford Kids Foundation's Derby Gala! The event will feature a fun-filled evening with amazing food, an open bar with Derby Drinks, and a wonderful program highlighting the foundation's work throughout the year.

The online silent auction opens on April 15th, two weeks prior to the gala, and will close before dinner begins at 7:00pm on May 4th. Hors d'oeuvres will be served during cocktail hour from 5pm-7pm, and we will be showing the Kentucky Derby on multiple screens in the conference rooms for all to view right before dinner. The Kentucky Derby race is at 6:45pm EST.

Our 4-course dinner with dessert will be served by our wonderful group of volunteers and followed by our program presented by Andrew Kistner, our evening Emcee and OKF Board Member. All food is gluten-free and cooked in a celiac-safe kitchen by The Oxford Center's top-notch personal chef.

If you are unable to attend the gala in person, you can still donate and participate in the silent auction! The Oxford Kids Foundation is 100% volunteer-run, and all proceeds/funds raised go directly towards grants for providing therapy to children in need that are not covered by insurance in the state of Michigan. Any and all support is welcome!

If you or someone you know would like to be a sponsor or donate an item/experience for the 2024 gala this year, please contact us at 248.264.2244 or email us at info@oxfordkidsfoundation.org.
