Silver Queen Derby - June 15

I think tomorrow is a say-something-hat day. - Vida Boheme

Silver Queen DerbyLadies, it is that time of the year again. This June 15th, 1130 hrs to 1400 hrs is the time for the most keenly looked forward to third Annual Silver Queen Derby. Time to show the ladies at Ascot that the most audacious hats in the world are worn this side of the Atlantic at Stein Eriksen Lodge, in the stunningly beautiful Deer Valley, Utah.  And when the cause célèbre is the People's Health Clinic's Women's Wellness program, it is time to pull out all the stops.

Once again adding to the festive atmosphere this year is the Park City Harp Ensemble who will enliven proceedings by serenading shoppers. And, there is a lot more to look forward to - participation by Farasha Boutique, jewelry from Right at Home and handbags from Purse Dreams SLC. The highlight of the event shall be a scintillating performance by Park City Treblemakers.

So if there are any out there who think that the event shall be incomplete without their hatted appearance, now’s the time to book your tickets. The point of contact is Jenny Dorsey, the People’s Health Clinic event coordinator. Email her at [email protected] or call 435-333-1871. The whole concept of having a summer Derby is her brainchild. She visualized an event where ladies could come wearing their favorite summer dresses, some really fun hats and learn about women’s health issues over a delectable lunch.

And this is exactly how this event has turned out to be. It is now a regular part of the busy Park City social calendar of events, and the build up to the third edition is quite the talk of the town. Like this young teacher from Park City who has attended the first two events said, “I simply love the atmosphere and the views from the Lodge are to die for. I am most curious to find out who wins the prize for the best hat this year. I hope it’s me!”

The highlight of the lunch will be an auction to raise money for the PHC’s women wellness initiative. On the block will be items like packages to the Olympic Park for skiing, the Black Diamond Gym and Park City Sailing, as well as a vineyard tours in the Napa Valley. There will also be a draw to pick lucky winners for personal styling from Farasha Boutique and spa treatment at the Stein Erickson spa.

The idea behind raising all this money is to really reach care to the People’s Health Clinic patients, a majority of them being women. Studies have found that the incidence of breast cancer in the Summit and Wasatch counties is among the highest in the state of Utah. Events like the Silver Queen’s Derby play a very important role in helping spread awareness about the need for women to go for early screening.

Well to the Derby then where the crème de la crème of society ladies wearing their best summer hats shall sip champagne and make their contribution to a noble cause in the best traditions of the genteel and fashion conscious fairer sex of yore.
