DRUM ROLL, PLEASE…..

The numbers are in and they speak wonders about the generosity of our community and the hard work of the staff, board and volunteers at Bluegrass Council of the Blind! The 5th Annual SEE Cruise event on April 9th raised just over $20,000 for programs to help blind and visually impaired Kentuckians! YES!!! That is no mistake! We nearly reached DOUBLE our goal this year! We can’t thank our hosts or sponsors enough! Our good friends at BANNERS  donated $1000 back to the charity, Integrated Electrical, our Ship Sponsor, donated above and beyond the sponsor level, Retina Associates of Kentucky, our Port Sponsor was awesome and our five Tug Boat Sponsors – ServiceMaster Fire and Water Restoration Services, Graviss McDonald’s Restaurants, Bluegrass Parrot Head Club, Danielle Bozarth and John Judge in honor of Kate McCabe towed us over the top!   Our silent auction raised over $5000 and with more than $10,000 in corporate and individual donations, we were able to reach our goal and far beyond! Thanks to the Junior League of Lexington and the Delta Gamma Sorority for providing excellent volunteers and a huge thanks to our donors who gave so generously to the auction and raffle.

Central Bank Thursday Night Live

 Benefiting BCB and Featuring Conch Republic
Fifth Third Bank Pavilion at Cheapside Park
251 W. Main Street Lexington

Each summer, the Downtown Lexington Corporation (DLC) hosts Central Bank Thursday Night Live. Nonprofits are paired with a band on Thursday nights and receive all the beer tips from DLC’s beer tents. BCB is always excited about our night at CBTNL! BCB’s Executive Director is in a band – Conch Republic – and we coordinate our volunteer night with the band for lots of tropical fun.
