I’m not a native Southerner, in fact I’m from Cincinnati, Ohio.
But just across the river, is the Bluegrass State, Kentucky and home of horse racing, specifically the Kentucky Derby.
Being the daughter of a native Kentucky gal (my mother), Derby Day has been a tradition in our family for many years.
I am so excited for the Kentucky Derby this coming Saturday, May 3rd and can’t wait to celebrate from my now home for 9 years and counting, North Carolina.
My outfit pick for Derby Day this year:
Even better is that the folks over at Cottonelle share my love for the Kentucky Derby and understands that getting race day ready includes meticulous grooming – hair, makeup, clothes, shoes and much more – but you’re not totally ready until you’re confident.
Cottonelle has a grand presence at the derby this year including:
Green Room Sponsorship: Before celebrities hit the red carpet and the races, they first stop in the green room to relax and freshen up. Cottonelle will be on-hand in what they’re dubbing the “Clean Room” with refreshments, a hair and makeup touch-up/refresh station and a fun opportunity to chat with Cherry.
As part of a partnership with daytime talk show “Bethenny,” Cherry will be spending her day mingling with celebs to find out how they get red carpet ready – all as part of a show segment giving a sneak peek inside the Derby.
Terrace Level Bathrooms Sponsorship: With more than 165,000 people attending the Kentucky Derby each year, the bathrooms are nearly as trafficked as the betting windows. Cottonelle is upgrading the bathroom experience onsite, providing Cottonelle TP and flushable cleansing cloths across the bathrooms giving attendees the opportunity to get clean and fresh while at the race.
Further, Cottonelle wants to keep your bum fresh all year!
The Cottonelle Great Finish Sweepstakes is a giveaway that will reward Americans with a year supply of Cottonelle products should the No. 1 and No. 2 positioned racehorses place in that order during the Kentucky Derby.
People looking to get in on the action can sign up at the Cottonelle website. The first 15,000 entrants to sign up will be awarded a year’s supply of Cottonelle toilet paper and flushable cleansing cloths if the outcome aligns.
