The Grandstand Classic is the largest fundraiser for Make-A-Wish® East Tennessee. The goal of the Grandstand Classic is to raise money to make wishes come true for children in the Greater Knoxville and surrounding areas with life-threatening medical conditions and to give them hope, strength and joy. The 2017 Grandstand Classic is a derby themed event that will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at The Knoxville Museum of Art. The evening will include music by EmiSunshine, dancing, traditional Mint Juleps, cocktails, food, a Hat Contest, auctions, and of course a live feed of the Kentucky Derby as the excitement happens at Churchill Downs. Most importantly, the Grandstand Classic is an evening of charitable giving, aiming to raise over $90,000 toward granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions in our community.
