One thing we can all be proud of as Kentucky sports fans is the state’s involvement in the relief efforts after the devastating earthquake in Haiti a few weeks ago. This morning we linked a report about the University of Louisville baseball team’s help and the University of Kentucky “Hoops for Haiti” telethon has received lots of national attention. Now the Lexington Legends are adding to the Bluegrass swell of support by donating funds from single-game, group and walk-up ticket sales for their April 18 game.
All funds will be donated to the UNICEF relief fund, and the team will also collect material goods at the gates on the day of the game. Central Kentucky baseball fans can send a message by selling out the game. “We’re always working very hard on supporting our local community, but we’re also very proud and happy when we can support communities outside Central Kentucky,” Legends General Manager Andy Shea said in a news release. “This is one of many ticket promotions and opportunities we will be doing to support the victims of the earthquake in Haiti.”
