Hope has a name: Mine. It’s yours too.
And now I’m hoping The Healing Place doesn’t run out of time.
The Louisville facility offers freedom from homelessness and addiction. The goal right now is 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.
As I said last week, 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.
We hope you’ll join us in spreading hope this holiday season by visiting www.hopehasaname.org to make an online contribution.
WE DID The Dougie
“SportsTalk 84″ host Lachlan McLean showed off his mad moves last week when the Louisville Lightning and The Voice-Tribune hosted a “Dougie Dance-Off” during halftime of the Lightning’s Dec. 10 match. And let me tell you: Of all the sporting events I’ve attended, I’ve not enjoyed a more entertaining half.
Lach – along with his darling daughters Maddie and Lucy (I’ve nicknamed them the Diva Duo and am absolutely in love) – did The Dougie alongside a number of dancers who ranged in age and gender.
In the end, however, the crowd picked 7-year-old Demani Ford as the winner of the coveted trophy. Expect to see the pop-locking youngster on some national dance show one day soon.
In addition to the trophy, Demani also won two tickets to the Lightning’s remaining home games, a one-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.
Plus, he definitely earned bragging rights, though he was such a sweetie, I don’t believe you’ll ever hear him boast.
