The Burbank International Film Festival hosts its 2nd Annual Kentucky Derby Fundraiser on Saturday, May 6th from 1:00pm-6:00pm on a beautiful Beverly Hills property that was the former estate of movie legend, Elizabeth Taylor. The view is breathtaking. On arrival, you'll be whisked to the Red Carpet and greeted by photographers all looking to capture your best pose. After strutting past the media, enter the raffle and use your tickets to pick your favorite horses to win, place or show for the Kentucky Derby marquee race. Half of the bets will benefit the Burbank International Film Festival, and you'll receive the other half of the proceeds if your ticket is chosen from the winning horse's basket.

When you enter the famous household, you'll be greeted with a refreshing beverage and access to the bar. While enjoying your cool drink, get to know the entertainment crowd and compliment each other on your best Kentucky Derby attire which will also be eligible to win the "Best Dressed" prize. Admire the impressive Silent Auction items on the grounds and bid on your favorite item. Before we all gather around the big-screen TVs to watch the race, enjoy a delicious southern meal with all the trimmings. The excitement of the race will be followed by more enjoyment admiring the beautiful scenery and finding out if you are a big winner of the Race; the Best Dressed contest; or a Silent Auction Item. All tax-deductible proceeds go towards benefiting the operations of the Burbank International Film Festival, a 501(c)(3) non-profit. For more information or questions, please contact
