Here at UK HealthCare, we're used to performing operations. However,
this month, we are co-sponsoring a different kind of operation:
"Operation Pumpkin," an initiative of WUKY and the Kentucky Blood Center
designed to emphasize the importance of donating blood to save lives.
This month-long campaign will feature events at the Lexington
Farmer's Market and Keeneland Racetrack to raise awareness about the
need for blood products in Central Kentucky. The culmination of the
campaign will take place on Friday, Oct. 28, during "Halloween at Gratz
Park" where attendees will have the opportunity to raise funds by
bidding on several pumpkins donated and decorated by local celebrities.
If you've ever wanted a pumpkin signed by Coach Matthew Mitchell and
Coach Joker Phillips, or a pumpkin with a hat signed by Coach John
Calipari, now is your chance.
