What: Fifth annual Think Ahead Group (TAG) derby party

Where: Empire Room

The 411: For the fifth annual rendition of this TAG favorite, these young professionals eschewed typical derby-watching venues and instead welcomed supporters to the Empire Room in the Dallas Design District. Upon arrival, partygoers were greeted by a beautiful horse, so naturally they took pictures with their new four-legged friend before procuring the requisite mint juleps. Once the 141st Kentucky Derby had come and gone, the group danced away the afternoon to music by Petty Theft and strolled through the silent auction to bid on coveted items up for grabs. Since its inception as a young professionals group in 2009, TAG has raised more than $360,000 in support of Center for BrainHealth research.

Who: Julie Fratantoni, Justin Powell, Stephen Richman, Maggie Flagg, Courtney O’Callaghan, Stephen Stark, Samantha Olguin, Lakan Foster, Katherine White-Spunner, Taylor Brown, Kristen Carter, Andrew Matt, Kendal Kramer and John Jackson.
