Derby After Dark – Gala & Auction

Saturday, May 6, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Since 2008, BCI has held an annual gala. Known today as Derby after Dark, this event combines all the fun of the Kentucky Derby with celebrating those who do great things to ensure opportunities for people with disabilities to achieve their full potential.

This year, Derby After Dark will be held on Saturday, May 6th at Ameristar Casino in St. Charles. Filled with the excitement of the Kentucky Derby race, live entertainment by Fix Newton, dinner, cocktails, and much more – this night is sure to be SPECTACULAR!

On this night, we will also be honoring Kathy Cummings as our Loving Hands award recipient, Cambridge Air Solutions as our Competitive Employment Partner of the Year, and Reckitt as our Customer of the Year.

If you would like to support our mission through a Derby After Dark sponsorship, contact Development Director Kristin Williams at [email protected].
