Charitable Giving Event & Special Guest Speaker – Saturday 3:00-4:00 p.m.
Sponsored by Royal Metal Powders

MPIF will be providing an opportunity to bring together delegates and spouses to give back to the local Louisville community.  This year, MPIF is partnering with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kentuckiana. Their mission is to provide a home and support that allows families to stay together while they focus on the healing of their sick children at a critical time. While the group is preparing the goodies bag, we are pleased to have a special guest speaker, Travis Stone, joining us. Travis will be joining us to provide insights on the horse racing community, the history of racing, how he got his start, and more.

MPIF asks that each attendee bring along 1-2 bags of candy or individual treats to the conference. Individually wrapped treats can include granola bars, individual bags of chips or crackers, fruit snacks, cereal or protein bars, small individual boxes of cereal, etc. You can drop off your items at the registration desk. Then we will gather as a group to package up the individual bags, attached a note of encouragement that we can donate to the families and their sick children.
