Thanks to the generosity of St. Vincent de Paul donor Phil Gahm, children who live in our supportive housing programs for formerly homeless families got to enjoy the thrill of watching a Louisville Cardinals men’s basketball game at the KFC Yum! Center recently.
Gahm, through his charity the Champ Foundation, donated use ofhis arena suite to SVDP’s Charity Golf Scramble & Auction Event last September.
An anonymous bidder at that eventpurchased the suite experience for $10,000. All proceeds go toward the creation of SVDP’s new Family Success Center, and that $10,000 will be matched by a challenge grant from the James Graham Brown Foundation.
On March 9th, a group of lucky school-aged children attended the University of Louisville men’s basketball team’s winning game against the University of Notre Dame.
The kids were very appreciative of the time Gahm, his friends, and several SVDP case managers and board members spent with them – and for the generosity of those who made this memorable field trip areality for them.
