Each year, all guest attendees get together at this reception to kick off the Guest Program. This year, in honor of the Exchange being hosted in the Derby City, guests will have an opportunity to purchase and design their very own Kentucky Derby hat to show off during Club GEAPS on the closing night of Exchange. Professional hat design consultants will be available to help guests create their perfect Kentucky Derby hat. Costs for design and hat will range from $100-$120 based on detail and will be the responsibility of individual participants. Light continental breakfast will be served during the reception.
Enjoy the afternoon touring the city of Louisville. The Historic Louisville Tour is a great way to learn about the area and several local treasures. Enjoy a drive through Museum Row and the second largest cast iron building facade district in the country as well as Old Louisville, home to the largest collection of Victorian architecture in the U.S. You'll also experience Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby Museum, with a walking tour of the grounds and time in the gift shop as you learn more about the "most exciting two minutes in sports." This tour includes a box lunch.
Monday, Feb. 25, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Join fellow GEAPS guests on a journey to the immaculate Undulata Farm. Tour the historic home and one of the country's most outstanding American Saddlebred horse breeding and training facilities. A portion of the tour cost goes towards a donation to The William Wood University for an equine scholarship fund. Afterwards, take in true Kentucky hospitality and experience Kentucky Fried Chicken's historic beginnings as you dine at Claudia Sanders Restaurant for lunch. Following lunch you will visit Westport Village, Louisville's first true outdoor specialty shopping village showcasing award winning shops and restaurants. For the non-shoppers in the group, there are plenty of alternatives, such as Elements Therapeutic Massage, Heine Brothers Coffee, Avanti Skin Center, Zi Olive, Pretty Nails Salon & Spa and more.
