The Milford Arts Council (MAC) has served the greater Milford community for 45 years with artistic opportunity and experiences that support and foster cultural growth as well as improve the vitality of our wonderful city. This year, the MAC was presented the Cultural Contribution Award by Milford’s Chamber of Commerce. Join us for our 7th annual benefit, Saturday, May 6th from 4- 7 pm and have a fabulous time while investing in the future of the Arts in greater Milford.

From 4-6PM, enjoy delicious food, cash bar with mint juleps, wine and designer beers while bidding on silent auction items including award-wining wines, small batch bourbons, cocktail cruise, lottery tree, jewelry and much, much more. Be entertained by Emmy Award-winning composer and pianist, Rex Cadwallader. Well known radio personality, Brian Smith, will host the evening and Milford’s own Santa Claus, Rick George will provide a fantastic photo-op with his beautifully restored 1931 Ford Model A Coupe. Prizes awarded for best hat/dressed woman, man and couple. Games and other opportunities to enjoy this exciting event will be available.

Once the silent auction closes at 6PM, we will drop our giant screen and present a LIVE telecast of the Kentucky Derby, followed by the announcement of the silent auction and 50/50 winners.

Watch the most exciting two minutes in sports on our GIANT 20’ screen, LIVE! You’ll feel the pounding of hooves and the rush of air as these majestic and powerful four-legged athletes charge by you—larger than life! There is no better place to be than the Milford Arts Council’s Milford Center for the Arts to watch this event.

Paid reservations are a must, as this event sells out quickly. Be a Part of Art!

 Tickets are $45 per person and $50 at the door.
