Wear your best hat to Junior League’s Derby Day gala at La Jolla Cove, May 3

The 14th annual Junior League of San Diego Food & Wine Festival, “A Kentucky Derby Affair,” is set for 1-5 p.m. Saturday, May 3 at La Jolla Cove.

Co-chairs Katie Oliver and Jodie Spanos note the fundraiser has become one of San Diego’s most popular Derby Day events. It will feature tastings from more than 50 of San Diego’s best restaurants, craft breweries, wineries and spirits purveyors, as well as Derby viewing screens of the 140th annual Run for the Roses, Derby attire, raffles, a silent auction and live music. Frankie V of “Frankie and Geena Mornings” will serve as master of ceremonies.

Proceeds benefit the Junior League, a non-profit dedicated to the support of at-risk children and families — particularly transition-age foster youth.

General admission tickets are $85 and VIP tickets, which include access to a VIP lounge stocked with specialty samples and valet parking, are $140.
