Moshpix: You didn't have to go all the way to Kentucky to get into the Derby spirit. South Branch hosted its 1st annual Kentucky Derby Charity Event, with plenty of big-hatted ladies and dapper dudes sipping on Mint Juleps and munching on southern comfort food. The proceeds from the event benefited the Friends of the Chicago River. Photos courtesy John P. Wise Photography.
