For the third year in a row, the Links Derby Day Party for Education brought the spirit of the Kentucky Derby to life in Kansas City. Big hats, Derby inspired cuisine, fashion and décor were all a part of the fun filled day held at the Longview Mansion in Grandview on May 7. Attendees enjoyed live Derby coverage with music, beverages and games of chance while supporting higher education and programming for local youth and college-bound students. This annual event is sponsored by the Jackson County (Mo.) Chapter of Links, Inc.
