About Alpha Derby Weekend

Four Events. Four Vibes. Friday kicks off early with the Alphas of Atlanta Open Golf Tournament followed by the Miquel Wilson Fashion Show, and Kick-Off Social & Concert. Then, Saturday brings The Kentucky Derby Watch Party. Finally, the weekend wraps with the popular Sunday Jazz Brunch. Simply stated, #AlphaDerby is the perfect Atlanta alternative to enjoy the Kentucky Derby — all for a good cause.

Alphas from across the metro-Atlanta area all collaborate to host a first-class experience while benefiting local non-profit education foundations, a true party with a purpose.
