We soaked up the sun on Saturday in The Plains for the annual Gold Cup horse race. Mint juleps, big hats, and pastel pants were plentiful. We stopped in at the Beckys Fund tentand snapped Reese Gardener, Beckys Fund founder Becky Lee, Mike Knapp, Sam Harper, Meredith Wells, and Jordan Bickel. Over 700 joined us in Beckys six tents, all to fight domestic violence.
This year the Bisnow bus added a furry friend. Naming sponsorships are still available for the fox, the only one who would go so close to Mike Ponticelli when his socks came into view. (We heard he was spending a lot of time with a fox, but we never dreamed it was an actual fox.)
