Postponement of the Annual Kentucky Derby Party
Due to the Global Pandemic with the COVID-19 virus, the 146th annual running of the Kentucky Derby has been postponed until the fall. We are consequently moving the annual party to that day as well so we can still enjoy the wonderful day and experience once things pass due to the virus. Our thoughts and hopes are with everyone to stay healthy and well.
Enjoy Plymouth's Best and the Original Kentucky Derby Party while supporting the MAP Academy!
September 5, 3:00 PM (VIP - 2:00 PM) Kentucky Derby Party - Join us for the Red Carpet Event of the season in Plymouth. This is the event you want to see and be seen. Every year this party has gotten better and better. You won't want to miss this party. This event will feature our new function space and includes paparazzi, photographers, red carpet, photo booth, door prizes, 50/50 drawings, silent auction, raffle to win a 2 year lease on a brand new car (10,000 miles per year - winner to pay tax/doc and acquisition fees), donated by Tracy Chevrolet, a chance to win a 1 ct diamond, best dressed and best derby hat contests with it all culminating in the most exciting 2 minutes in racing - the running of the 146th Kentucky Derby! The derby run time is estimated to be at 6:50 PM. We close down to regular service for the entire day and transform our space into an amazing kentucky derby themed party.
This is sure to be an afternoon you will remember all year. So, put on your fancy dress, amazing hats, bow ties, sear sucker suits and wild colors and enjoy the afternoon with us while supporting the MAP Academy to help raise funds to establish a residential program, providing shelter and security to students facing housing insecurity so they can focus on their education. Last year we raised over $45,000 for our charity. We look forward to helping this wonderful cause this year and hope to raise even more than we did last year.
Tickets are being sold at three different levels - Millionaires Row, the Infield, and General Admission. Tickets for Millionaires Row are limited to 20 total and they are allocated to dedicated bar seats with a special party favor bag to go. The majority of the proceeds raised from this ticket price go to the charity. These seats are $200 each. Tickets for the Infield are limited to 30 total and they are allocated to dedicated hightop tables (bench seats) around the bar and in the private dining room (high top tables). The majority of the proceeds raised from this ticket price from these tickets go to charity as well. Please note some of the chairs will be pulled from high access areas so the seats around the bar at hightops will be set on the built in booth side while the other side of the table will be for stand up access only to provide better flow through the establishment. These seats are $100 each and will include table service. The General Admission tickets will be the remaining tickets and they are $65 each. We will also be selling tables in our function room with viewing on our 85" tv. There will be 8 for $150 in addition to your ticket cost - This includes a souvenir ticket, complimentary drink of the day, food served throughout the afternoon and a swag bag full of goodies. Live entertainment (The Fey Band will be playing the entire event for us) will perform all afternoon for those that want to dance up a storm prior to the running of the derby. Tickets are limited so get yours before they are gone. You can buy them with the link below and increment the number desired in the shopping cart when you check out.
* 50/50 drawings (ie the "betting") will be at 4 different levels to provide for participation with all our guests. The lucky people that draw the winning horse in the derby will take 1/2 of the purse for their respective level of participation. The remainder of the money goes to the charity.
** Raffle items and silent auction items will be separated into 3 groups with closing times set incrementally so if you don't get something you wanted in the first group closing, you can focus your time, effort, and money on the 2nd and 3rd groups.

About MAP Academy
Map Academy is a charter public high school located in Plymouth, MA, designed to serve students for whom traditional school has not worked, including youth who have dropped out or are at risk of leaving school without a diploma. Map Academy offers a flexible, student-centered experience rooted in a culture that amplifies student strengths, acknowledges life's realities, helps students navigate them, and sets each student on a path to graduate ready for life after high school.
- There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all education.
- School should not ignore the realities in students' lives that may hold them back from academic progress.
- All students can succeed with the right resources and support, even those who have struggled in the past.
- Learning does not start and stop when bells ring.
- All students can achieve at high levels and should be held to high standards.
- School is about learning, exploring, and achieving, not ranking, complying, and competing.
High School Reimagined
Map Academy recognizes that learning is not limited to the traditional school day or the traditional school walls, and therefore the high school experience should not be limited in those ways either. Map Academy is a school with a building and classrooms, but the learning experience flows within the space and outside the walls in ways that work for our students. Our model is based on four key principles:
- Competency-Based – Students master skills or knowledge before moving on
- Highly-Supportive – Students get what they need to succeed
- Flexible Pathways – No one path to success looks the same
- Career Development – Students are ready for life after high school
