As much as the horses are part of the Kentucky Derby, so are the hats and attire. Get into the full spirit of the races by donning your best hat, dress or sport coat. Prizes will be awarded! For inspiration, visit our style page.

Local partners, Madison Hat Shop and Stitch (Madison) have offered to assist those who may need some help in styling their race day outfit. It’s all in the details! Tell them Friends of Florham sent you. Learn more about our sponsors!

SIPS AND NIBBLES

Racegoers will also enjoy a specially selected lunch inspired by the Derby, and created by FDU’s own Chef Jeff. Stroll up to the bar and enjoy a glass of wine with your three-course picnic, or enjoy a signature cocktail of mint julep. Find out what's on the menu!

OUR GOAL

As in past events put on by Friends of Florham, our goal is to raise funds to continue the care, maintenance and preservation of the Florham mansion. It is our hope that we can preserve the rich history of this beautiful building, whilst moving into the future.

 

Tickets for the event are $120/per person or $240 per couple.​
