Jared Lorenzen Memorial Fund to launch later this week

KSR is still in the process of setting up the Jared Lorenzen Memorial Fund, which will collect donations in memory of our good buddy Jared Lorenzen that will go straight into a college fund for his two children, Taylar and Tayden. We are still working out the specifics on the back end, but plan to launch the fundraiser during Thursday’s show at Lorenzen’s old high school, Fort Thomas Highlands. Once the fundraiser is ready to go, we encourage you to make a contribution of any amount — like $22 for his jersey number or $10,354 for his career passing yards.

Then beginning on Friday, KSBar and Grille will be showing Jared’s best games on a loop through the weekend. In addition to the Jared tribute on the televisions, 22 percent of all sales will go directly to the fund for his children.

    Awesome gesture by you guys. I’m hoping we raise a monumental amount for the Lorenzen kids.

    UK (or the UKAA) should pony up and announce a full ride for both kids if they want to go there. Any money raised could go toward another school or grad school.
