At this annual event hosted by Hickory’s SALT Block Foundation, guests took in the Kentucky Derby in style, donning extravagant hats and sipping mint juleps made with bourbon from Seventeen Twelve Distillery. They enjoyed live music from Secondhand Still and food from L&L Catering. Proceeds benefitted the foundation, which subsidizes occupancy costs for the nonprofit organizations that reside at the SALT Block.
