About the Event

I Love You More / The Michael Trella Foundation would like to invite you to an afternoon of friendship, cocktails and fun as we watch the "Greatest Two Minutes in Sports", the Kentucky Derby! Start putting together your finest Derby attire and get ready for a great day of fun.

Our afternoon kicks off at 1:00 as we simulcast the Churchill Downs undercard horse races with an opportunity to select & root for your favorite horse! Live music is provided throughout the event by acoustic guitarist Brian Belonzi and local favorite, The Sofa Kings. Open bar, great food, silent auction, door prizes, and live racing all afternoon lead up to The Run for the Roses!

I Love You More / The Michael Trella Foundation's primary mission is to provide bereavement support to families who have lost a child. We provide financial assistance for funeral costs and other support as requested. In addition, we encourage others by supporting various youth programs, post-secondary scholarships and families in need. Please join us as we celebrate Michael's life and kindness while raising money to show our love for others.
