KSR and UK Alumni groups across the country are teaming up to raise money for DanceBlue while getting together to watch the Cayts. Gamewatch parties are already scheduled through UK alumni in Indianapolis, Cincinnati, New York, Charlotte, Austin, Louisville, Atlanta, Chicago, Birmingham and Washington D.C., and the fine people of Dallas held their event two weeks ago for the Texas A&M game.
Houston is up next for tomorrow’s game against LSU.
If you’re in the Houston area, head over to Luke’s Ice House, in the Washington corridor, to hang out with fellow members of Big Blue Nation before, during and after the game. This venue is owned by Kentuckians, one of whom played baseball at UK, and they will be offering fine southern hospitality and drink specials for UK fans. The Houston alumni group suggests that those attending donate at least $5 to DanceBlue. They will also have raffle/auction items available, with all proceeds going to the cause.
DanceBlue is a student-run philanthropy at the University of Kentucky. It is a year-long fundraising effort involving thousands of UK students, which culminates in a 24-hour no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon on UK’s campus. All of the money raised by DanceBlue goes to the Golden Matrix Fund. DanceBlue has been active for over seven years, raising more than 3 million dollars for the DanceBlue Kentucky Children’s Hospital Pediatric Oncology/Hematology Clinic and Markey Cancer Center. Every year, over 120 campus organizations and 700 dancers help raise money to support all the DanceBlue families.
