Environmental attorney Sanders says Kentucky Bluegrass Ball is an “Editor’s Pick” as Washington celebrates President O’bama!

The Kentucky Society of Washington, DC will celebrate Barack Obamas inauguration with their Bluegrass Ball on Monday, January 19th at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel (2660 Woodley Road, NW), beginning at 6:30 p.m.

The black tie affair kicks off the inaugural week in a big way, celebrating all that Kentucky has to offer. This year, Chef Michael Paley of “Proof on Main” in Louisville Kentucky has been chosen to be the executive chef of the evening. The menus will consist of foods inspired by the great state, most of the ingredients being shipped in from Kentucky.

The Kentucky State Society has earned the remarkable honor of kicking off inaugural ball celebrations due to their deep roots in Washington Society. Established in 1912, the Kentucky Society is one of the oldest in the capitol, and held its first ball to honor Vice President Alben W. Barkley in 1949.

The event, which has been named an “Editors Pick” by the Washington Post, is expected to bring in almost 1,500 guests – which will surely be delighted by the reception, dinner, and dancing to be talked about for years to come.
