Jennifer Lawrence Kicks Off Derby Week in Her Home State!

Jennifer Lawrence returned to her home state of Kentucky this weekend!

The 27-year-old Academy Award winning actress stopped by the opening night of Derby Week at Churchill Downs on Saturday (April 28) to celebrate her partnership with Woodford Reserve & their $1,000 Mint Julep Program. Jennifer played bartender at the event, and was also seen mingling with Woodford Reserve’s Assistant Master Distiller, Elizabeth McCall.

The proceeds of the Woodford Reserve Mint Julep Cups sold for $1,000 and $2,500 will go to support The Jennifer Lawrence Arts Fund. While at the event, Jennifer presented the 2018 Award in the Arts award to philanthropist Linda Bruckheimer.

FYI: Jennifer is wearing Dolce & Gabbana.

    I’m sure you meant that the special event mint juleps in the gold and silver colored cups sold for $1000 and $2500, respectively, and the proceeds will support the Jennifer Lawrence foundation for support of the arts in Kentucky, but the way you wrote it is kind of confusing…. thanks for the article and pictures!

    I had wish she had picked out a big hat, knowing her it would be a humorous choice.

    This “article” is a hot mess. It’s the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation that raises money for several different things, one of them happens to be for funding the arts in Louisville.

    Something for everyone, doubles as an ice-cream and a beer Mint Julep ! Kentucky Derby color run

    Jennifer’s Spaghetti chilli sandwich intriques me somewhat, a Southern chilli with noodles that includes pizza – even better in a jaffle perhaps. Flavors of South Cajun chicken & Creole recipes make the mouth water, and I recently ate at Hogs Breath Café,, the Byron Bay chilli prime rib sauce is a 2007 world champ of chilli sauces (heat rating is 7 out of 10).
    Flavor of spicy sweet hot fiery barbecue has maybe a trace of smoked hickory mango !
