A dash of summertime sartorial socializing, a rousing cocktail mix-off, and a feel-good fundraiser, all set to the heart-stopping, thundering hooves of galloping purebred horses. Sound like the must-do event of the summer? We’d double down on those odds. You should too.
The 8th Annual Deighton Cup offers a fully integrated VIP experience with full access to the Miles End Motors Field of Dreams (we think this might involve a supercar or 20), cigar lounge, and live music sound stage with a South-meets-Pacific-Rim lunch included in the ticket. Following tradition, one man and one woman can walk away with a nosebag of prizes, and the title of Gallant Sartorialist or Belle du Jour. Lubricating the dancing boots will be the 4th Annual Cocktail Jockey Mixology competition with a g-note for the barchitect who takes the top prize.
