Greetings, past Supporters of the Arch City Derby Day Party –
We hope you have been doing well with everything that has been going on in the world for the past 2 years. It has been a trying time to say the least. We have truly missed being able to celebrate with the public.
Well, let's just say… We're BAAACK!! We are kicking off a new event this year, as the men of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. - Epsilon Lambda Chapter are partnering with the East St. Louis Alumni Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. to bring you an even better Kentucky Derby Viewing Day Party now known as… the GATEWAY CITY DERBY EXPERIENCE! On Saturday, May 7th, 2022 we plan to go bigger with the pageantry and elegance befitting one of the most renowned sporting events in the world.
This year we will be at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel Rooftop Lounge. From there, you will see stunning views of the city, overlooking Forest Park and the Central West End. We hope that you will join us this year for the fun and entertainment. But also, to help us support some worthy causes.
We have two types of table seating – The JOCKEY CLUB seats, which are tables of 10 guests, or the TURF CLUB seats, that are tables of 4 guests. All VIP Tables come with the same amenities and experience. You can visit our event website www.gatewaycityderby.com for more information, or buy your tickets directly at gatewaycityderby2022.eventbrite.com.
The proceeds from our event will go to support both the Epsilon Lambda Charitable Foundation and the Metro East St. Louis Community Initiative.
Thank you again for your past support, and we look forward to seeing you this year at the CHASE for the RACE!!
