In what has become an annual tradition, the Kentucky Basketball team invited area families to the Wildcat Coal Lodge for a holiday dinner last night. John Calipari shared some pictures from the event, which show the team serving dinner and handing out gifts, with sophomore center EJ Montgomery playing Santa Claus.

“Sitting here and reflecting on a special evening with our team,” Calipari wrote on Twitter. “We were able to spend some time with some special families from our community. My hope is we brought a little joy to their holiday season and that our guys learned the type of impact they can have on others.”

    My sons teacher got to take her family to this. They have a 7 year old little girl who is battling leukemia. It’s stuff like this that makes me proud of my team and my coach.

    Yea its about wins and losses when creating a legacy at UK, but when its all said and done, Coach Cal will have a smile on his face knowing he left a positive impact on players who have learned that its more than basketball and just making money. Using your platform and gift to create gifts for others that they will never forget, is what its all about. These young men are better for having experienced his leadership!

    And you mean to tell me Santa isn’t real?! Are you serious Clark?
