Each year from November through April, MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® and Old Friends team up for an unparalleled online Derby hat auction, "Hats Off to the Horses: The Road to the Derby". This unique Derby hat auction begins on November 1st and features six months of one-of-a-kind couture Kentucky Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® to benefit Old Friends Equine of Kentucky. Each month, one custom hat is created to honor one of the retirees of Old Friends. The auction series has been a great success, and we wanted to offer a page where visitors could come and enjoy all of the hats and the horses of Old Friends who inspired them!
