From big hats to faux horse races, Southern Silks is one of our favorite and biggest events of the year! What better way to support behavioral and mental health care for Arkansas children and families than with a post-race Kentucky Derby inspired soiree? Last May, we spent the evening celebrating with live and silent auctions, dinner and libations, and more!
In case you missed August’s issue of Inviting Arkansas, we’ve included a little Q& A below to give you some insight on the event and our organization. Check it out!

Q: What is Southern Silks?
A: Southern Silks is one of our largest fundraisers of the year and allows us to raise money in order to provide our patients with the best care possible. It’s a night of faux horse races, dinner and libations, live and silent auctions, a hat contest and much more. Our theme for Southern Silks is Kentucky Derby-inspired and happens the same weekend as the Kentucky Derby as a post-race soiree.
