A Brilliant Night in the Bluegrass – Markey’s Annual Golf Dinner and Calcutta

August 21, 2021

While the Markey Golf Classic has become one of the premier golf outings in the Bluegrass, our annual dinner, live auction and Calcutta auction, taking place the Saturday prior, has become an event all its own.

This year the exclusive event will be held at the beautiful Mt. Brilliant Farm and will feature cocktails, live music, and a delicious dinner. The evening’s festivities will also include an exciting live auction and a Calcutta auction, where guests can bid on teams of golfers while enjoying a light-hearted roast of the players.

Tickets for the dinner are $500 each or can be purchased as part of a sponsorship or playing spot in the tournament. For more information or to reserve seats, please contact Jessica Miller at the UK Markey Cancer Foundation (859-323-6448 or jtmi255@uky.edu).


The health and safety of our guests and their families is our highest priority. Please know that the safest way for you to attend the 2021 Markey Golf Dinner is to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before the event date.

Based on CDC recommendations,  we require all event attendees to be masked at all times when in the barn, except when actively eating or drinking.  We encourage all guests to practice social distancing at the event, and to test for COVID-19 48 hours prior to the event. If you are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms, we ask that you not attend.  Dupree Catering will be responsible for plating the food at the buffet.   Masks and hand sanitizer will be provided.
