MANKATO, MN -

Partners for Affordable Housing hosted their first Hats, Horses and Hope fundraiser Saturday.
The fundraiser had fun games, a silent auction, a red carpet, and a fun hat contest. The inaugural Kentucky Derby fundraiser helped raise awareness for homelessness and the lack of affordable housing in Mankato. All the proceeds from the event go directly to the Partners for Affordable Housing and help them provide emergency shelter, traditional housing, and case management services.
 
"Obviously, the attire is super fun. Seeing the different women's hats, the dapperness of the men that are out there. I don't even know if that's a word, but just seeing everybody out here is wonderful," Deb Newman said, executive director of Partners For Affordable Housing said. 
 
Newman says it was a great turnout for their inaugural celebration. They had many individuals, as well as businesses attend.
