Derby Day attendees will bet on horses to win "The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports." All funds raised will go to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

There will also be a silent auction, authentic Derby-style food and drink, entertainment and plenty of big screen televisions to watch the event.

Derby Day was started by Lisa Odendahl, a Metro Atlanta mother of a 12-year-old cancer survivor.

The Kentucky Derby will air on 11Alive beginning at 4 p.m.
