Thank you for your patience during these uncertain times. After careful consideration and extensive coordination with local and state authorities, the Sean Ranch Lough Foundation has made the decision to reschedule this year’s Denver Derby Party for May 1, 2021, when we will celebrate our 20th anniversary. This decision was made prioritizing the health and safety of our patrons, sponsors, entertainers, vendors, staff, and surrounding communities.
While this news is a disappointment to us all, we are beyond thrilled to announce that, despite not being able to hold our annual fundraiser, we have still awarded a four-year scholarship to an incredible local student! It’s important to note that this was only made possible because of the ongoing generosity of our patrons and sponsors. Both the SRL Foundation and our scholarship recipient thank you!
As a ticket purchaser, you can help support the SRL Foundation by rolling over your ticket to the 2021 Denver Derby Party. If you wish to keep your ticket and lock in pricing, no action is required and your ticket will be valid for 2021. If this option does not work for you, there will be a 30 day window in which you can request a refund. Simply sign in to the AXS app, select your tickets and request a refund. Due to current conditions it may take up to 30 days for funds to reach your account.
We will have further announcements next week, including possible virtual events and how you can get your hands on a limited edition bottle of Woodford Reserve, blended specifically for Denver Derby. While we know these are unprecedented times, we are still committed to sending more students to college. If you want to join the cause, please consider donating.
Thank you for your support, and we can’t wait to celebrate our 20th anniversary in a BIG way next year. If you have ANY questions please contact us.
Congratulations to This Year’s Scholarship Recipient!
Thanks to your support, we were able to award a 4-year scholarship to an amazing student!
For the past two decades, funds for the scholarship have been raised at the annual Denver Derby Party. Traditionally hosted in May, the 2020 party has been postponed until 2021. Despite postponement, the foundation was still able to award a full scholarship to this year’s recipient.
We had hundreds of worthy candidates for this year’s scholarship, but Mahamoud stood out as a born leader and hard-working individual who exemplifies some of Ranch’s best qualities. We’re so proud to be able to support him on the next chapter of his educational journey and can’t wait to see what the future holds for him at Colorado State University.
Camara graduated with a 3.9 GPA and was ranked in the top 10 in his class at Denver West Leadership Academy. He was also a member of Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) during all four years of high school. In his family, Camara will be the first high school graduate and the first to go to a four-year university. He plans on majoring in biology and hopes to pursue a career in medicine.

“This semester I am studying abroad in Montevideo, Uruguay studying Spanish. I have been learning an incredible amount about South American culture and the Spanish language. I have had the chance to work with kids in orphanages here - playing and cultivating relationships. None of it would be possible without the SRL Foundation Scholarship.”Stevie2016 Recipient
“Every day I’m at CSU I’m more and more grateful for the opportunity to be here. I feel my education has given me purpose and a canvas to define who I am. I’m managing a busy schedule and extracurricular activities as well. Chemistry is killing me but my GPA last semester was 3.7 - I can’t thank SRL Foundation enough for this opportunity!”Molly2018 Recipient
