Chicago Derby Party Hats

The 2016 Kentucky Derby is the 142nd running of the Derby, and we are excited to welcome WGN Radio AM 720 as they broadcast live from Howells & Hood, right in the heart of downtown Chicago. 

Guests can also try and pick out the winning horse, and all proceeds from a fun raffle will go to Children’s Oncology Services, Inc. (COSI).

We will also be featuring sound for the race on all TVs, giving out programs (lyrics to song, horses line-up, etc.), decorating with roses and derby décor, and there will be prizes for "Most Dapper" and "Best Hat"!
