THE IROQUOIS STEEPLECHASE LAUNCHES A “PARTY IN A BOX”

The 79th Iroquois Steeplechase is Selling a Safer-At-Home Alternative

NASHVILLE, Tenn. –The Iroquois Steeplechase, presented by Bank of America, is launching a “Party in a Box” for a safer-at-home celebration on the event’s cancelled race day Saturday, June 27. The Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt is the primary beneficiary of the race meet.

In making the announcement, Iroquois Steeplechase Chairman Dwight Hall said, “Since boxholders won’t be able to come to their box on our race day, we’re bringing a box to them. This way families and friends can still gather and celebrate Nashville’s grand tradition in their own homes and backyards while watching highlights from previous years on News Channel 5.”

Organizers are selling a “Party in a Box” at three levels so patrons can choose the style party they want to host along with their boxholder friends.
