Chairs Megan and Luke Hotze and Hannah and Cal McNair are planning the inaugural Kentucky-Derby themed Hats, Hearts & Horseshoes event to benefit Bo’s Place. Pictured (from left) at a recent event kickoff are Megan Hotze, Hannah McNair and Joanna and Brad Marks. Guests will don their derby best and enjoy a day on the lawn at a home in River Oaks, with cocktails, a cigar bar, band, big board and live auction. At the kickoff, Derby Day attire, including fashionable hats, was modeled, and guests sipped on spiked mini milkshakes. Spotted in the crowd were Joanna and Brad Marks, Meredith and Patrick Chastang, David Hartland, Kadriye Alcorn, Cora Sue and Harry Mach, Stacey and Al Lindseth, Susan and Charlie Neuhaus, Bo’s Place executive director Mary Beth Staine, Bo’s Place board president Travis Torrence, Kristina Somerville and Christie Sullivan.
