Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance Supported during Cole’s Community Table Series in Lexington


LEXINGTON, KY — Coles 735 Main, a renowned culinary destination in Lexington, Kentucky, is proud to announce an upcoming event for which Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance has been selected as beneficiary. The event, a part of the Cole’s Community Table series, will take place on August 23, 2023 at the downtown Lexington restaurant, 735 East Main St. A portion of all proceeds from guests’ purchases that evening will be donated by Coles directly to Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.

Cole’s Community Table series aims to support local nonprofits within the Bluegrass community, fostering a spirit of giving back and strengthening community bonds. Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance, a prominent nonprofit organization dedicated to the welfare of retired racehorses through accredited aftercare, will receive a portion of all proceeds from the evening.

“After a pandemic-induced break, our whole team at Coles is happy  to bring back our Cole’s Community Table dinner series to help out those local nonprofits making a positive change for our community, ” said Cole Arimes, Owner and Executive Chef at Coles 735 Main. “Starting off the series with an organization like Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance is a natural fit, as their work and mission are an integral part of what makes the Bluegrass so unique. We encourage everyone to come on down for a drink, dinner or even just dessert to help raise funds for such a worthy nonprofit.”

“We are immensely grateful to Coles 735 Main for choosing to stand with us in our mission,” said Samantha Smith, Director of Marketing and Communications, Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance. “This event provides a unique opportunity for supporters to enjoy an incredible dining experience while directly contributing to the well-being of retired racehorses.”
