Hollywood was treated to some Southern hospitality when the 7th annual Unbridled Eve Derby Prelude Party came into town. The event — a prelude to the Kentucky Derby and Unbridled Eve Derby gala, which takes place in Louisville, Kentucky in May — was held at The London West Hollywood on Jan. 7. The gathering treated handpicked celebrities to delicious food, specialty cocktails, and great music.

Bulleit Bourbon was responsible for the evening’s bourbon tasting, and a Derby pie shipped in from Kerns Kitchen was also served. The party’s music came courtesy of DJ Vice and Kevin Olusola of the Grammy Award winning group Pentatonix.

Stars in attendance included Kim Coles, Kym Whitley, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Kelly Price, Julio Iglesias Jr., Omarosa, and plenty more.

Proceeds from the party went to the Unbridled Charitable Foundation, whose primary beneficiary is Blessings in a Backpack. Since the start of the Unbridled Eve Derby Gala in 2012, the event has raised $500,000 for Blessings in a Backpack, helping the organization feed tens of thousands of children.
