In short, #AlphaDerbyWeekend is an event series of fundraisers held the first weekend each May. These events are centered around the style and pageantry of one of the most well-known horse races in the world, the Kentucky Derby.
Three events. Three vibes. From the Kick-off Social & Concert on Friday, the Kentucky Derby Watch Party on Saturday, to the Sunday Jazz Brunch, if you’re not in Louisville for the Derby, THIS is the place to be seen! Eight chapters of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. from across the Metro-Atlanta area all collaborate, to put on first-class events benefiting eight local education foundations – a true party with a purpose.
Each year Jay Austin Bowties makes an exclusive design to commemorate the party of the season. The Jay Austin 1906 Bowtie is our 2019 Alpha Derby Weekend Bowtie. Seen here in the classic shape.
