LCF Supports Napa & Sonoma

October 16, 2017

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the Foundation and your many friends in the Bluegrass and beyond, we are thinking of you and keeping you all in our prayers during the dangerous fires in California. We have heard from many of you and followed the events closely learning of the far-reaching devastation. This tragedy is truly unfathomable. Our hope is that you, your families, facilities and employees are safe. Your resilience and strength during this time is an inspiration to us all.

Your generosity over the past 13 years has made the Kentucky Bluegrass Wine Auction & Derby Gala, our largest fundraiser, the huge success that is today. You have helped raise millions of dollars in supporting the fight against cancer.

You are our partners and friends, and we want each of you to know that the Foundation and its many supporters are here to help you and your communities during this time of need. In our effort to support you and your community, the Foundation is making contributions to both the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund and the Sonoma County Resilience Fund. Our many patrons and board members are asking how they can help, and we are directing them to these organizations as well.

Your Kentucky family will be thinking of you in the weeks ahead. Please call on us if there is anything we can do.

Warmest Regards,

Brenda Rice, President and Founder

Kristi Martin, Executive Director
