Owensboro Shelter Has Yummy Food and Cole Swindell Tickets Up for Grabs Friday
Yeah! That's Cole Swindell. And, yes! We're going to give you the chance to win some tickets to see him concert at the Owensboro Sportscenter if you stop by our big yard party this Friday.
WBKR's Yard Party series continues Friday, September 23rd and we're going to help one of our own. As you may know, WBKR morning show personality Angel Welsh (my cohost) is working to open an emergency shelter for women and children here in town. The shelter is called My Sister's Keeper and Angel recently gave folks a virtual tour of the building that will eventually be home to the facility.
Tremendous progress on the shelter has been made, but there is more work to do. One of the recent highlights, without a doubt, was the announcement that My Sister's Keeper is one of five finalists for a 2022 Impact 100 grand worth $100,000. That grant, if secured, would expedite the construction work on the building and bring its grand opening date closer to fruition.
In the meantime, fundraising continues. That fundraising includes a big yard party here at the WBKR studios on Friday, September 23rd.
Various volunteers and board members from My Sister's Keeper will be on hand grilling hamburgers and hot dogs. Sack lunches will be served for just $5. Of course, those lunches include a hamburger or dog, plus chips and a drink.
In addition to the cookout, there will also be a huge lemonade stand!
Plus, there will be a massive bake sale featuring deliciousness from a variety of local bakers.
Here's just a taste of what you can expect! Owensboro resident and shelter supporter Teresa Richeson baked up some #CakePops.
And Tanya Warner baked some cookies celebrating My Sister's Keeper.
Lanaya Rusher baked up a good-looking batch of brownies!
Plus, if you stop by, you'll have the chance to win a pair of tickets to see Cole Swindell in concert Thursday, October 14th at the Owensboro Sportscenter.
My Sister's Keeper also just announced the latest step in its evolution. The website- MySistersKeeper270.org is currently under construction and will be live soon.
The My Sister's Keeper Yard Party will take place at the WBKR studios at 3301 Frederica Street in Owensboro.
