Statement from VIPP Communications on the Grand Gala:

There has been a lot of speculation in regards to the Kentucky Derby and the events surrounding the big weekend. Because of the economy, the devastation around the world and the layoffs, we have decided not to have The Grand Gala. We will still have our business guests in for the Kentucky Oaks and Derby but will have a private event Thursday and Friday night.

We are very, very proud that we provided the City of Louisville with an event like The Grand Gala the last eight years. We appreciated all the support and we would like to thank The Galt House, our sponsors and Patricia Barnstable...she certainly raised the bar and we wish their event continued success.

At this time there's no additional information available in regards to the private event. An updated press release will be forthcoming in the near future.

We appreciate your continued support.
