Unbridled Eve jumps right into the front of the Derby party pack [Food & dining]

Unbridled Eve has quickly joined the ranks of Louisville's top Kentucky Derby parties. The inaugural gala is tonight, 7 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. at the Galt House's Archibald Cochran Room. Tickets are $500 each.

In just its first year, event co-chairs Tonya York Dees and Tammy York Day have attracted The Office's Kate Flannery and Oscar Nunez, Dennis Haysbert of The Unit and 24, romance novelist Nora Roberts and Ice T and, yes, Coco. Ill be there too. My mission: record the conversation between Roberts and Ice T.

The auction items available at Unbridled Eve, which benefits Blessings in a Backpack, The Les Turner ALS Foundation and the American Cancer Society are equally impressive: game tickets to the LA Lakers’ owner’s suite, Chicago Cubs VIP Experience, tickets to the Masters Golf Tournament, VIP Indy 500 Experience and original art.
