Randy Blevins with Think Tank told us:

This year our nonprofit partners are Crusade for Children, Gilda’s Club and Mulligan’s.  

The WHAS Crusade for Children

makes life better for children with special needs by inspiring generosity in our community partners.        

​Gilda’s Club

Gilda Radner once said, “Having cancer gave me membership in an elite club I would rather not belong to.”While many people can relate to this statement – whether they have been diagnosed with cancer or have someone close to them who has – there is a club and a community in Kentuckiana that they can be happyto join.

​Mulligans Living Kidney Donors
