Kentucky Cares: Show your support for those in need

Big Blue Nation, let us not forget the devastation and heartbreak some our state’s people are going through this week. Although the outpouring of support has been tremendous with the help of you and the American Red Cross, the road to recovery for some is going to take time. Let’s continue to show our support for those affected by last week’s storms by doing everything in our power.

While you’re watching Friday’s Southeastern Conference Tournament games on WKYT, Kentucky Cares is making it easy to help those in our state affected by last week’s tornadoes. On Friday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET, operators will be standing by to take donations for the American Red Cross. You can call 859-299-5455 or 800-500-1513.

The first five callers – starting at 10 a.m. – to match our previous donation of $10,000 will join Ellen and I for lunch and a personal tour of the NEW Wildcat Coal Lodge. Mitch Barnhart and his wife, Connie, will join us for lunch.

You can continue to show your support for the Kentucky Cares Campaign leading up to Friday’s telethon by donating to the Red Cross. There are four ways you can do that:

  • Text Redcross to 90999
  • Visit and give to the Disaster Relief Fund
  • Drop a check off at any Central Bank location
  • Mail a check to 1450 Newton Pike, Lexington, KY 405011 with “Kentucky Cares” in the memo line

Join us and show everyone that Kentucky Cares.

*Date for the lunch and tour with Coach Cal must be agreed upon by all five parties. The lunch and tour includes the donor and one guest (total of 10 guests). 

**Any and all donations are welcome. The $10,000 matching donation on Friday only applies to the tour and lunch with Coach Cal.
