A Kentucky Derby auction that benefits a resource center for breast cancer patients will feature hats worn by Nicole Kidman and Sarah, Duchess of York.

The Hats for Hope charity hat auction is Thursday in Louisville. It is a silent auction featuring 200 new and used designer hats, as well as other merchandise.

Two hats worn by Kidman in the film "Australia" will be up for auction. The duchess donated one hat, and there also will be a hat worn by Ann Romney, wife of former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Tickets are $30 in advance through Wednesday and $40 at the door.

Last year, Hats for Hope raised almost $63,000 for the M. Krista Loyd Resource Center at the Brown Cancer Center in Louisville.
