440 Kansas steak burgers were delivered to the new Jacobs Hope Cafeteria in Lexington this morning, courtesy of the great second-place state of Kansas. Governor Beshear is on hand to receive the burgers from Kansas governor Sam Brownback, after the two made a friendly wager on the NCAA title game. Had Kansas won, Beshear agreed to send Kentucky hams to a charity in Kansas.
“We would like to thank Kansas and Governor Brownback for their sportsmanship and this gracious donation,” Gov. Steve Beshear said. “Of course we also thank the UK team for thrilling us with their inspired play this season.”
Hope Center Executive Director, Cecil Dunn, says “It’s great to see a national event bring two cities together and help the homeless. We are very grateful to Governors Beshear and Brownback for their passion and generosity. This beef will make an immediate impact on the homeless that we serve and is a very creative way to show our clients that our community cares.”
The donation will help feed over 400 homeless men and women at the Hope Center.
