Yukon Denali

The Heritage Ball live auction will include a Yukon Denali.

The Heritage Foundation of Williamson County has announced three special items to be auctioned off live at the 48th annual Heritage Ball presented by Vanderbilt Health. 

Heritage Ball sponsors donated the auction items for the black-tie event Saturday, Oct. 2, at the Eastern Flank Battlefield Park.

“The live auction is one of my favorite parts of the evening each year because it shows how truly generous the patrons of Williamson County are and how much they care about the preservation and future of their town,” Heritage Foundation President and CEO Bari Beasley said. “We are looking forward to an incredibly memorable night.”

The first live auction is a Kentucky Derby Grandstand Experience package to include two third-floor grandstand tickets to the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 7, 2022, and two third-floor grandstand tickets to the Kentucky Oaks on Friday, May 6, 2022. In addition, the winners will receive VIP Fast Access passes, rooftop terrace hospitality, three-night stay at select hotel accommodations in Louisville, daily continental breakfast for two and round-trip ground transfers between the hotel and both events.
