LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The red carpet was rolled at the Barnstable Brown Gala for all the celebrities in town for this year's Derby. It's the 23rd year for the annual bash in Highlands where actors, actresses, athletes, models, singers all came to have a good time.
"I still consider myself a new be," said super model Niki Taylor. "I got to come to this, the fashion has changed a lot. It's really cool to see the guys getting into it."
"I haven't been here in years," said soul singer Freddie Jackson. "My grandfather is from Kentucky, I feel like my blood is back in here."
"It is so fun to be here," said reality start Kate Gosselin "The excitement here is amazing. I honestly didn't know what I was getting into when I arrived here. If you don't grow up doing this, it's so fun."
The party is hosted by twin sisters Patricia Barnstable Brown and Priscilla Barnstable. The celebrity packed gala last year donated $1,000,000 to the Barnstable Brown Diabetes and Obesity Research Center of the University of Kentucky.
