Calipari-Signed Ball for Charity is Stolen


There are awful people, and then there is this guy.

Family Abuse Services Incorporated, a non-profit that helps victims of domestic abuse, held a silent auction Saturday night in Frankfort featuring a glass-encased and autographed John Calipari basketball.  The premiere auction item would not reach its final destination.

When charity workers went to retrieve the signed basketball, all they found was an empty case, abandoned by a no-good, low-down, dirty thief.

Despite the thief’s attempt to ruin the charity’s parade, Family Abuse Services still raised $16,000 Saturday night.  If you are the no-good, low-down, dirty thief, you can take away that title by returning the ball to the charity; no harm, no foul.  If you’d like to help the charity, click here.

    In Frankfort, e’erbody gets trucked. Not my phrase or way of life – just a fact when you hit those mean streets. Hope the charity does well and the thief is found.
