Cat fans, meet Luke Klausing. He’s one of us — an eight year-old card-carrying member of BBN, a die-hard fan and a lover of all things UK. He’s our friend. Luke also lives with the Cystic Fibrosis — but with our help, maybe Luke and others like him can find a way to beat the life-shortening genetic disease.
This Saturday, Luke’s family and other families touched by Cystic Fibrosis are spearheading and hosting CRAFT Louisville, an age 21+ party featuring craft beer, bourbon, wine, pizza and music at the 2nd Street Bridge Streetscape in Louisville from 7-10 pm. Regional breweries, the city’s top craft pizza makers and Louisville’s best local bands will be on hand and proceeds benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as a search for a cure continues.
There’s no UK game this Saturday so there’s no excuse not to help make this event a success, gang. Plus, you’ll be within shouting distance of the YUM! Center if you feel so inclined to hurl some creative jokes toward the house Pitino built. Luke himself has procured many of the items for the event’s live auction, including a signed Randall Cobb football. He also sent Cal a personal invitation to the event (I posted it below, and it’s awesome). More info on the event, the lineup, the vendors and the tickets can be found at the CRAFT Louisville website. Let’s help Luke and kids everywhere like him this weekend. It’s a whole bunch of your favorite things in one place, it’s a great cause and it sounds like an awful lot of fun.
