The American Lung Association’s 2013 Derby Eve Gala will be an elegant and fabulously fun party that celebrates Louisville’s French connection right in the heart of downtown Louisville. Mesdames et messieurs will be swept off their feet by the Seelbach Hilton’s magnificent old world charm, and the hotel’s Medallion Ballroom is certain to be Louisville’s most dazzling venue on Derby Eve, with décor and dinner menu offering up all the pleasures of France.
Of course, the French love to party, and THE ATLANTA ALLSTARS are sure to keep gala guests kicking up their heels from the time they enter the ballroom. The ten piece band, comprised of top vocalists, an incredible rhythm section and blistering horn section, is guaranteed to WOW any audience, with selections ranging from pop and R&B to classic jazz and swing.
