Join us at Kinnick Stadium as we broadcast the Kentucky Derby races on the jumbotrons with the children's hospital in the background! All proceeds raised will go towards the Northwestern Mutual Eastern Iowa's Nursing Support Fund to support the nurses on the pediatric oncology floor at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital. This fund gives nurses direct access and full discretion to those on the frontline. If they see a family in need or personally experience a loss and just need a coffee break, there's no red tape or wait!

Break out your derby attire with your largest hat and enjoy:

  • Bourbon tasting hosted by Cedar Ridge
  • Live Blue Grass Band "The Anderegg Family"
  • Silent Auction
  • Fundraiser horse race betting
  • Kentucky Derby inspired food and drinks


Parking will be free on the west side of Kinnick Stadium Lot number 43 West
