We can't do all of these things without the help and support of businesses and friends. This year our 7th Annual Golf Scramble will be held 5-22-21at Fairway Golf Course in Wheatley, KY to raise money to help with projects that are helping make the Butler-Turpin House and Park a place people want to visit. In previous years Jack "Goose" Givens from the University of Kentucky and Kenny "Sky" Walker have been among the celebrities to play at the scramble. We are asking for your help. Any donation, whether it be rounds of golf, stay at a hotel, gift certificates, item donations, or monetary donations, would be greatly appreciated. Once again, thank you in advance for your help. Please feel free to visit us on face book or at Tax ID#36-4670856.
