Hope for the holiday season

Hope Ad

The Healing Place offers freedom from homelessness and alcoholism and addiction. The organization – a cornerstone in this community – has recently touched my heart as I learned about its outreach. I hope it does the same to you.

The Healing Place is working to raise a total of $1.2 million to pay off the new Women and Children’s Center by the end of December in order to earn an $800,000 grant.

The amount seems enormous, but if we all pitch in a $10 contribution, there are many people who believe it’s achievable, including me – and my colleagues.

I asked a handful of them to join me in raising awareness for the Healing Place. Designer Bryony Tanner, News Editor Jacob Glassner, Ad Services Assistant Bridgette Borraga, Staff Writer Lauren DePaso and Designer/Photographer Chris Humphreys readily agreed.

We hope you’ll join us in spreading hope this holiday season by visiting www.hopehasaname.org to make an online contribution.

Do The Dougie

Can you do The Dougie? “SportsTalk 84″ host Lachlan McLean can and he’s going to show off his skills when the Louisville Lightning and The Voice-Tribune host a “Dougie Dance-Off” Friday, Dec. 10.

(Don’t know what The Dougie is? Google it and search for University of Kentucky Women’s basketball coach Matthew Mitchell doing the dance. Coach can groove.)

Lachlan – along with his competitors, who vary in age and gender – will do The Dougie during halftime of the Lightning’s 8 p.m. match at Mockingbird Valley.

The team’s general manager David Horne,  and I will emcee the contest, but the crowd will pick the winner by applause. Hope you’ll come on out and help choose the champion, who will win a trophy, two tickets to the Lightning’s remaining home games, a 1-year subscription to The Voice-Tribune, a Breeders’ Cup collectible Zenyatta cap, a $90 gift certificate to Sunny Daize, $20 in gift cards from Staxx Roadhouse & BBQ and a $10 Sun Tan City gift card.

Tickets to the game start at $10 and are available at www.louisvillelightning.com. By the way, the Lightning will hold a “watch party” and broadcast the University of Louisville men’s soccer team match against UNC during Friday’s indoor game.
