Let's Talk Derby 2011, a set on Flickr.
A fantastically organized event held at the home of Mary Sue Caranna in Gulfport, MS. The event was called Let's Talk Derby and was themed after the historic Kentucky Derby boasting some of the best attributes of the affluent horse race, including an authentic race horse. The night was called to order with the playing of "Call to Post", the Gulfport High School strings played during the first of the night and it was finished out by the band Rhythm and Rain from New Orleans. Food was served by Oak Crest Mansion, Nelson's Restaurant and Memorial Hospital. The weather was perfect and the event lasted into the night with the moon beaming through the southern oaks.
Let's Talk Derby was organized to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Forest Heights and was a total success raising money to help the kids be productive citizens. Take a look at the website at www.bgcgulfcoast.org.
