Our good friends at Ferdinand’s Ball are offering up a deal for KSR readers and listeners interested in joining us at this year’s party. Now through this Thursday night at 11:55 pm, you will receive $25 off your cocktail ticket, good for the premium open bar, appetizers, access to the photo booth, silent auction and dance floor, and much more. Just head over to the ball’s ticket website to purchase your tickets and enter promo code “drewloveskate” (it was at the 2011 ball when I fell in love with Kate Upton) to get the deal.
Held annually on the Thursday night before the Kentucky Derby, Ferdinand’s Ball kicks off the Derby weekend festivities while raising money for Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Facility in honor of Ferdinand, the 1986 Derby winner that was sold into slaughter after his million-dollar racing career. The gala raises funds and awareness to ensure other legacies like Ferdinand don’t meet the same horrific fate.
This year, the 2014 version of Ferdinand’s Ball will feature celebrity hosts Jon Hood, Jarrod Polson and Darius Miller, plus Russ Smith, Peyton Siva and Luke Hancock. The event will be held Thursday, May 2 at the Muhammad Ali Center in downtown Louisville.
