Fourth Annual Hats & Horses May 4


A Kentucky Derby-Style Benefit for Club 360

Presented by VBA Design, The Fourth Annual Hats & Horses, a charity benefit for Club 360, takes place on Saturday, May 4, 2024, from 3 – 6:30 p.m. at Capt. Anderson’s Event Center, 5550 N. Lagoon Drive in Panama City Beach. This entertaining afternoon event will include everything you’d expect (and hope for!) from the Kentucky Derby: mint juleps and whiskey, hors d’oeuvres and entertainment, a silent auction, games and prizes.

Hats And Horses Img 5876“We’re thrilled to bring the excitement of the Kentucky Derby to Panama City Beach,” says Club 360 President, Victoria Williams.” This event, always well attended, promises to bring a fun-filled afternoon while also giving back to the community with proceeds benefiting Club 360. “Women Giving Back Full Circle” is their tagline.

Club 360 was formed in late 2019 as a charitable organization that offers women leaders in the community the opportunity to give back, beginning with educating the youth on career opportunities and ending with providing scholarships.

The Fourth Annual Hats & Horses will be an afternoon of games and races, including the Grand Finale, “Run for the Roses,” which will be televised live at the event, and a spirited competition to determine this year’s Best Derby Hat and Most Dapper Dude. This year, table sponsorships are available, starting at $1,000. And you don’t want to miss this year’s special derby souvenir drink glasses, available individually and with some sponsorship packages. Tickets are $50 per person in advance, available at, and $55 at the door.
