West Laurel Hill Cemetery hosts splashy Derby Bash

West Laurel Hill Cemetery hosts splashy Derby Bash

Nearly 150 revelers in bow ties and dress hats enjoyed carriage rides, a best-dressed contest, dancing and mint julep bars at West Laurel Hill Cemetery May 6.

Revving the crowd before the Run for the Roses: The Red Hot Ramblers, games of chance, InstaShack photos and bidding on three mystery gifts: a cruise on the Delaware, a spa package and a chocolate, wine and champagne pairing.

Also a hit: Using metallic ink on black parchment, fashion illustrator Denise Fike sketched ladies, many in their Lilly Pulitzer-esque best.

The cause: Tickets were $50; $100 for VIPs, raising $4,000 for Hope Springs Equestrian Therapy.
