Co-Chairs Kirsten Williams and Wendy Messmann, along with Honorary Chair Doris
Jacobs cordially invite you to the 8th annual Day at the Races- Kentucky Derby Style
Fundraiser benefiting the Lee Park & Arlington Hall Conservancy.
The Arlington Hall & Lee Park Conservancy maintains the historical site Arlington Hall,

We recently have completed the Katy Trail Connection Bridge, that connects Lee Park
with the Katy Trail.
The Day at the Races is our annual fundraising event (Kentucky Derby Party Themed)
for Arlington Hall & Lee Park Conservancy each year. We use the funds raised to
support Dallas’ Central Park, often referred to as “front lawn” of Dallas, Lee Park has
provided residents a serene retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life for more than
100 years. Lee Park boasts 20 acres of pathways, rolling lawns, trees and gardens
along Turtle Creek.
