Saddle up for a good cause

Guy Harvey’s Island Grill was transformed into the infield of Churchill Downs for a few hours as Kentucky Derby fans gathered eat, drink and watch the 136th Run for the Roses at Talk Derby to Me on Saturday. Large, elaborate hats were the afternoon’s fashion statement as guests sipped mint juleps, served ice-frosted silver cups, placing “bets” on the race. One could almost imagine they were actually at Churchill Downs for the race and not overlooking Smokehouse Bay.

The annual fundraiser benefits Upon A Star Foundation and The Optimist Club of Marco Island to continue to provide safe and fun activities that teach lifetime values to Marco’s youth.
