Saddle Up for Southern Elegance at Louisiana Delta Community College's 3rd Annual Hats and Horses Fundraiser on May 4th!

Monroe, Louisiana - Get ready to don your finest attire and don your most magnificent hats because Louisiana Delta Community College is proud to present its 3rd Annual Hats & Horses Derby Party, bringing a touch of Kentucky charm to the heart of the Delta. Mark your calendars for May 4th from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. for an unforgettable celebration at the Monroe campus in the Community Auditorium at 7500 Millhaven Rd.

LDCC's Hats & Horses promises an afternoon steeped in Southern elegance and Derby tradition. Our campus will be transformed into a scene straight out of Churchill Downs, so guests will immerse themselves in the thrill of the race while enjoying the warm hospitality that defines Southern culture.

"Hats & Horses at LDCC is a perfect tradition that brings our community together in true Southern style," said Frank Bennett, Louisiana Delta Community College's director of institutional advancement and alumni relations. "It's a joyous occasion that celebrates our love for our college, students, and community spirit."

From fresh mint juleps to delectable Southern fare straight from Churchill Downs, attendees will indulge in the flavors of the South while partaking in the silent auction, bourbon pull, bourbon tasting, photo booth, and the live stream of the Kentucky Derby. And, of course, no Hats & Horses celebration would be complete without our signature hat and fashion contest, where attendees can showcase their most extravagant headwear and clothing for a chance to win fabulous prizes.

Hats & Horses is not only a feast for the senses, but it also serves a noble cause. Proceeds from the event will support LDCC scholarships, ensuring that students have the opportunity to pursue their dreams and reach new heights. To give, go to
