Frequently Asked Questions

Will there be an Ursuline Derby Day 2021?
As of today, our annual benefit for 2021 is on track to happen! HOWEVER, this year it will be a Preakness Party rather than a Kentucky Derby Party. AND it will be totally virtual! You will enjoy everything from the comfort of your home. We still encourage you to wear your hat! Save the date! May 15, 2021


Why is the event changed to the Preakness?
Prior to our decision to go 100% virtual, we were planning to host the event, as we do every year, at First Energy Stadium. Due to the scheduling of the NFL draft, First Energy Stadium was not able to accommodate us on the first Saturday in May. Since our planning was already well underway, and the Save-the-Date cards had already been sent out when we made the virtual decision, we stayed with the Preakness Party plan. But rest assured, albeit virtual, and a different race, we are doing our best to make it an exciting and enjoyable evening for you!


Will all the elements of Ursuline Derby Day be included in this Preakness Party?
Web developers are diligently working on our website in order to bring you all of those exciting games. We will watch the race together live and we will honor our 2021 Merici Award winners. The ever popular Gift Basket Raffle will include dozens of valuable baskets that you can view on line, as well as, the horserace raffle, the 50/50, the live auction and "Moving the Mission". Be sure to come back and visit this page often as we may be adding even more fun!
