Round Barn fundraiser set for Monday night
« Return to News
If you plan to be in Lexington for the yearling sale or racing at the Red Mile, plan to attend the annual fundraiser for the historic Round Barn. Although located adjacent to the Red Mile and a part of the gateway to the track since 1880, today the Round Barn is maintained by the Stable of Memories Inc., a 501c3 corporation with its sole purpose to preserve and protect the historic barn.
The Round Barn has been home to world champion Standardbreds who once stabled there, troops gathered for war, and as a floral exhibition hall, which was its original purpose when constructed for the Kentucky Agricultural and Mechanical Fair Association. It was also once used for gambling.
The annual Round Barn fundraiser gets underway at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 30, at the barn on Red Mile Road. Tickets are $45 per person and include a barbeque dinner and two drinks. A silent auction to benefit the Stable of Memories will also be held during the event. Please purchase tickets at https://squareup.com/store/stableofmemories, at Fennell’s near the Round Barn, or RSVP to the email@example.com.
