Let’s Party Friday Night! (For Charity, Of Course)

The Lexington Charity Club is hosting a block party this Friday night to kick off the first home game of the football season. The event will be held at the Fifth Third Pavilion with guest hosts Kelly Anne Biele (former Miss Kentucky) and… wait for it…KSR’s own Ryan Lemond! The event will also include current students, alumni, past players, the UK dance team, and hundreds of other people roaming the streets of downtown Lexington.

There will also be games and giveaways throughout the night, including a couple of eating contests for you aspiring Joey Chestnuts out there. Plus, the 21 and older crowd can stick around for Overtime, the after party from 8-12.

Tickets for the event are $5 and that’ll get you into all the participating bars (w/ drink specials).

Stop by Kennedy Book Store or go to www.lexingtoncharityclub.com/upcomingevents to purchase your tickets today. You can also purchase tickets at the Fifth Third pavilion the night of the event.

And the best part… ALL PROCEEDS BENEFIT THE UK CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

See you there.
