The Shade Project invites you to our 4th Annual Down & Derby event on Saturday, May 5, 2018, from 4-9PM at Mercury Hall!
1 in 5 people will be diagnosed with skin cancer, and 1 person dies every hour from melanoma. At The Shade Project, we are trying to change these numbers, and with your support, we can make that happen. The Shade Project is an Austin-based nonprofit on a mission to prevent skin cancer and skin cancer-related deaths by providing sun safety education and sunscreen, promoting skin cancer screenings and implementing shade in public spaces.
At Down & Derby, you’ll enjoy cheering on the “most exciting two minutes in sports” broadcast while donning your finest hats and bow ties and joining The Shade Project to fight back against skin cancer. You’ll also enjoy delicious craft cocktails and Southern fare, a live auction, and fundraising program emceed by Ed Clements of KLBJ Radio, the opportunity to win exclusive one-of-a-kind prize packages, DJ entertainment and dancing, casino play and Derby games, and a local racehorse meet and greet.
