triplecrownJoin us on May 18 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm as Blue Ridge Arts Council toasts The Triple Crown, a uniquely American event, with an evening of signature cocktails and food pairings that are as much of a part of the event tradition as the horses are! Betting Ladies are encouraged to wear your best summer dress and a show stopping hat. Gambling Gents might consider a bow-tie (bonus points for fun patterns) and boater, fedora, bowler, or such! All this while enjoying beautiful art, lively conversation, and maybe even a little “horsing around”, while raising funds for the programs of Blue Ridge Arts Council. Tickets can be purchased by calling 540.635.9909 or online at
