An evening gala complete with horse racing and Kentucky Derby-style hats unfolded at Aksarben Village Friday night.
The Hope in the Heartland Gala featured food, a live and silent auction and of course horse racing -- all for a good time and all for a good cause.
Event Chair Marilyn Johnson said, "I just moved up here a little while ago and so for me to see how giving and wonderful Omaha people are and southwest Iowa people that we also have come to this event has just been incredible."
This was the third year for the event to raise awareness and money for fighting cancer in the metro.
