LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Heiress and reality TV star Paris Hilton, film actor Woody Harrelson and several music and sports figures are on the guest list for the Barnstable-Brown Derby Eve Gala in Louisville on Friday.
Hostess Priscilla Barnstable says other expected guests include Brooke Shields, Travis Tritt, Leanne Womack, Joey Fatone, Eli Manning and Tom Brady. She also expects to entertain Larry Birkhead, who's raising daughter Dannielynn Birkhead after the death of her mother, Anna Nicole Smith.
Barnstable and her sister Patricia Barnstable Brown have been hosts for the gala for more than two decades.
The event is a benefit for diabetes research. The University of Kentucky said last year the family has given or committed $2 million or more toward development of a university center for research and treatment of the disease.
