August 12, 2017 by  

The 11th annual Bluegrass International Cup is taking place next month in Lexington, and will be a fundraising event for the Fayette Alliance Foundation and the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Foundation.

Prior to the cup, the 6th Evening in the Gardens gala is set to take place on September 7. This is limited to 150 guests, who will be treated to food and cocktails. This has become the traditional kick-off to the International Cup. Tickets are $300 per person.

The day of the polo match, attendees will enjoy live music, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and an open bar. The polo match will begin at 6:00 pm and recommended attire is cocktail casual.

The Fayette Alliance Foundation is an organization that is dedicated to sustainable and economically sound growth of the city of Lexington. The Markey Cancer Foundation funds research into the causes and cures of the numerous cancers, as well as helping improve patient treatments.

It is likely that printed invitations will be sent out to many in Lexington who have supported this event in the past. These are usually provided by local stationery printing firms.

This yearly celebration will be held at Mount Brilliant Farm on Friday, September 8 beginning at 5:00 pm. Tickets are $200 each or $175 each when four or more are purchased.
