‘Happy’ Pollard:
A Life of Gratitude
L
ife has been difficult for 83-yearold Edward Pollard. He was born
poor, and when he was a toddler,
his alcoholic father took his own life. At
age 4, he contracted polio. Doctors said
he wouldn’t walk again.
But thanks to the care he received
at the old Kosair Crippled Children
Hospital, he proved them wrong.
Despite his physical challenges, Pollard
has always stayed happy. In fact, it’s his
nickname.
“My uncle gave me the unlikely
nickname because he said I was always
grinning and going on,” he said. “It’s a
name that’s stuck with me throughout my
life. Most people don’t even know me by
my real name — it’s even in the phone
book as ‘Happy.’”
Rotarians step in
In those days, local Rotary clubs
worked to help families affected by
polio. Fortunately for the young Pollard,
Eminence Rotary Club members were
diligent in seeing that he received the care
he needed.
That meant getting him to Louisville,
and Kosair Crippled Children Hospital,
where he stayed eight months. His family
lacked transportation, so he only saw his
mother once. He had surgery on his foot
and wore a brace through childhood. He
cannot lift his left
foot because his left leg is poorly
developed.
None of it stopped him.
“I refused to allow this childhood
disease to keep me from doing everything
that other kids did,” he said. “I credit
my mother and stepfather for that. My
stepfather didn’t show me any mercy. I did
all the work the other kids on the farm
did.”
A grateful Kosair Kid®
His stepfather’s discipline served
Pollard well in adulthood. He became
an electrician and for 16 years was an
inspector in and around his native
Henry County. Happy also served on the
volunteer fire department. These days in
retirement, he works for a monument
company and does yard work for loved
ones, just for the gratitude.
That’s what his life is about. He is one
grateful Kosair Kid®.
“I look back on my childhood not
with pain and regret but with gratitude,”
he says. “It was a hard life, but I made
it. So if I can return the favor for what’s
been done for me, I will by helping others
in need. And I know the help I received
from local Rotarians and Kosair Crippled
Children Hospital changed my life
forever.”
K
osair Charities lost one of its
best friends with the passing of
businessman Sam Swope, who died
on Dec. 9 at the age of 88.
Swope, who moved to Kentucky from his
native Ohio more than 60 years ago, went
on to build the state’s largest automotive
dealership. He was humbled by his success,
and he always believed that it was not just an
obligation but his privilege to give back to
the community that helped him succeed.
He was an extremely generous supporter
of the causes he loved, most of which
involved society’s most vulnerable, including
disabled children, animals and the elderly.
Kosair Charities has been perhaps his
most prominent beneficiary since he became
involved with the old Kosair Crippled
Children Hospital in the 1960s, according to
Kosair Charities President, Randy Coe, who
counted Swope as one of his closest friends.
“Throughout his lifetime, Swope donated
and raised millions of dollars for Kosair
Charities,” said Coe. “It’s impossible to tally
a precise figure.”
“He was just a tremendous example
to others,” Coe told The Courier-Journal.
Swope “didn’t measure success by the
amount of money he gave. I never once
heard about the amount. It was always,
‘What can we do better? How can we help
more of our Kosair Kids®.”
From north to south
Swope was born on Aug. 24, 1926, in
Rittman, Ohio, a small town near Akron.
He got his driver’s license at age 12 and ran
a business during high school, washing and
polishing cars.
He spent time in the Navy, then earned
a marketing degree from Ohio State
University. He teamed with his friend
Al Graf to purchase a Dodge-Plymouth
dealership in Elizabethtown, Ky., in 1951.
It was the smallest dealership in the
area, and as Coe recalled in 2012 when he
introduced Swope at Kosair Charities gala,
Dreams Take Flight, his competitors were
sure “this carpetbagger from the north would

Road Rally, an annual motorcycle ride that
has generated nearly $1 million for Kosair
Kids®. Swope later helped start a similar
event for Orlando, Florida’s Bahia Shrine
Temple, where he was an honorary member.
The Sam Swope Charity Ride has grown
into a blockbuster for both Shrines.
Hard to replace
high-tail it home within six months.”
It didn’t happen. Graf went back to
auto parts sales a couple years later, and
Swope continued running the dealership.
Times were tough until 1955, when thanks
to some nice new models from Plymouth
and Dodge, he sold 400 cars, up from the
41 he sold in 1951. He opened a second
Elizabethtown dealership, and two years
later he added a Plymouth dealership on
Dixie Highway in Louisville.
Claiming his niche
That was the beginning of something big.
Swope next bought a Chrysler Plymouth
store in St. Matthews in 1960, shifting
to Pontiac in 1961. His family moved to
Louisville.
“That’s when I began to make a living,”
he once said.
He built the Shelbyville Road Pontiac
dealership in 1965, making it the first of
the large suburban dealerships in Louisville.
In 1984, he bought 48 acres at I-64 and
Hurstbourne Parkway, half of which would
become Swope Discount AutoCenter. In
all, Swope’s business has dominated the new
and used car business in Louisville for six
decades, representing Acura, BMW, Buick,
Cadillac, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, GMC,
Honda, Infiniti, Lexus, Mitsubishi, Ram,
Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo.
Known for his TV advertising slogan,
“nobody walks away,” he became a local
legend.
“He liked to say, ‘Early to bed, early
to rise. Work like heck and advertise. And
always treat people the way you’d want to be
treated,’” Coe said.
Swope’s leadership
When he found success, Swope was
determined to share it with the larger
community.
The Sam Swope Leadership Award was
created in 1998 to recognize outstanding
community leaders. Honorees have
included: Bernard Trager, Sandy Metts
Snowden, Dr. James Ramsey, George E.
Fischer, and Madeline Abramson.
He had a handful of pet causes, but his
connection to Kosair Charities and the
Kosair Shrine ran particularly wide and
deep. He gave his own money, often with
a flair, as when he donated $80,000 on the
charities’ 80th anniversary. He used his
influence to spread the word about its
great works. He served on the Kosair
Charities board for 23 years, including
three terms as president, and he was
proud to be a Noble of the Mystic
Shrine, a Kosair Shriner.
Fifteen years ago, the avid
motorcyclist started the Sam Swope
Left to cherish Swope’s memory are
his wife, Marlys, a constant participant
in her husband’s favorite causes, son
Brad and daughters Susan and Patti, two
grandchildren, two stepsons and four stepgrandchildren.
Patti was recently named president and
CEO of Swope operations in Louisville after
her cousin, Dick Swope, retired from the
positions. She will remain as chairwoman of
the board.
As Coe said, it is futile to try counting all
of the ways Swope helped the community.
In an interview with WAVE-TV after
Swope’s death, Coe said Kosair Charities
may have suffered an irreplaceable loss.
“He made such a difference in so many
lives —people he never even met, but
he cared about them all and loved them
unconditionally,” Coe said. “He gave his
time, talent and treasure, but probably
his greatest gift was the example he set for
others of, ‘This is how you make the world a
better place for people.’”
“That great model is hard
to replace. Our community
is very blessed to have some
very good people, but there
were none better than Sam
Swope.”
“He made such
a difference in
so many lives
—people he

15th Annual Sam Swope
Road Rally
Dreams Take Flight
for Kosair Kids®
T
K
he sun shone brightly
on July 20 as about
400 motorcyclists
gathered for the 15th annual
Sam Swope Road Rally. The
2014 event raised $140,000
for Kosair Charities, and has
raised more than $1 million
for Kosair Kids® throughout
its history.
The 2014 Road Rally will
go down as a particularly
memorable one, according
to David Owen of the
Kosair Shrine Temple, which
manages the rally. That’s because founder
Sam Swope, a longtime friend of Kosair
Charities, passed away a few months later at
the age of 88.
Owen said Swope loved the event that
bore his name, and he was able to ride in the
2014 rally along with his wife, Marlys. He
also donated $100,000.
“Little did we know it would be the last
Road Rally he would ride in,” Owen said.
Scenic route
The rally began at Sam Swope Auto
Center at I-64 and Hurstbourne Parkway
and covered 70 miles, following a scenic
route through Taylorsville and Bardstown
before ending at the Kosair Shrine Temple
in Louisville.
Cash prizes were awarded to the three
motorcycle clubs that brought the most
participants.
A silent auction included items such as
framed photos and artists’ renderings of
Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
One lucky individual — Cindy Britain
— took home a new 2014 Harley-Davidson
Heritage Softail Classic. The motorcycle was
the grand prize in a raffle. Tickets were $100
and only 399 tickets were sold.
Having fun while
helping kids
Besides raising money for Kosair Kids®,
Owen said, the Road Rally is just a lot of
fun. He co-chairs the event with Roger
Dabney on behalf of the Kosair Shrine
Temple and its Motor Corps.
“We all love being around motorcycles
and the camaraderie of being around other
guys,” Owen said. “And you’re
helping kids.”
He said Swope was
particularly proud of the
Road Rally and was glad
to help start a similar
event for Orlando,
Florida’s Bahia Shrine
Temple, where he was an
honorary member.
“Sam was a special man to Kosair
Charities and Kosair Kids®,” Owen said.
“He will be missed.”
osair Charities’ sixth annual Dreams Take
Flight celebration was held on Oct. 4 in Hangar 5
at Bowman Field. Vintage planes lined the entrance
to the hangar as guests arrived. As the crowd grew, flight
attendants moved about Hangar 5 encouraging the purchase
of a flashing-plane pin for a chance to play in Kosair Charities’
version of the hit TV show, Deal or No Deal.
One lucky contestant opened a suitcase containing an allexpense-paid trip for two to the beautiful island of Aruba! After
the game show, Kosair Charities announced their commitment
to support over 80 agencies in 2014-2015 through their Gifts
& Grants Program.

Kosair Charities Supported Agency:
Visually Impaired Preschool Services
Changing Lives
Together
W
hen Visually Impaired Preschool
Services was looking to purchase
its Louisville headquarters about
ten years ago, the organization asked Kosair
Charities for $250,000.
But Kosair Charities went further and
kicked in $1 million. That helped double the
size of the facility.
“That changed our world and allowed us
to take it to a level we never dreamed about,”
VIPS executive director Diane Nelson said.
VIPS recently celebrated 30 years of
providing services to blind or visually
impaired children from birth to age 5 and
their families. The organization works with
kids at its own facility, at preschool or in the
home. Funded largely through grants from
groups such as Kosair Charities, VIPS is
the only agency providing these services in
Kentucky and Indiana.
Double deadline
The first five years of a child’s life are
key to their overall development, according
to Nelson. Helping visually impaired
youngsters during that period will determine
how they develop through the rest of their
lives.
“Ninety percent of learning is visual, and
80 percent of what we learn, we learn before
age 5 through visual cues,” she said. “So
there’s a double deadline, so to speak, to get
that information to children at an early age.”
So VIPS teachers teach by talking, for
example, noting that the leaves on a tree are
changing colors or describing a fire hydrant
and how a firefighter connects a hose to it
to put out a fire. When VIPS teachers work
with parents, they emphasize the importance
of the verbal approach.
“It’s about speaking the world rather than
observing,” Nelson said. “We give parents
the tools to do that.”
A national model
VIPS has numerous tools for working
with youngsters, including the popular
Kosair Charities Kids Town, which includes
things like a simulated bank, grocery,
bedroom, bakery and KFC drive-through to
teach kids skills for living independently.
All told, VIPS is a godsend to parents
who received the difficult diagnosis for their
child, and it’s become a national model
as other states work to provide the best
education for this vulnerable group.
For example, Nelson recently had
a conference call with a special State
Commission appointed by Michigan Gov.
Rick Snyder after they heard about the
great work VIPS was doing in Kentucky
and Indiana. Additionally, many families
have relocated to Louisville from across the
country just so their child can attend the
daily preschool program.
VIPS has a Lexington office and began
working in the Hoosier state in 2011,
where it has an Indianapolis office. VIPS
is working to reach more kids in Kentucky
who may be unable to travel to one of the
two Kentucky VIPS offices for services. One
way it does this is by training teachers who
can contract with VIPS to provide services
in rural areas.
A grant through the Glick Foundation
allowed VIPS to provide Project VIISA
Training (Vision Impaired Inservice in
America) which helped bring Dr. Bess
Dennison from Utah to show teachers who
work in occupational, physical and speech
therapy how to introduce visual cues as well.
Nelson said 20 new teachers were certified.
“Our goal is to help children reach their
highest level of education, through us or
others,” she said. “If a child needs early
intervention, how do we get it to
them?”
Kosair Charities
‘changing lives’
Nelson is extremely grateful for the
support of Kosair Charities: “First of all, we
could not have become an internationally
known center of excellence in educating
blind children. If you ask anyone in the
industry how to educate preschool age
children of blindness, they send them to us.”
“And year in and year out, they support
our boots on the ground. They pay for our
teachers, which is what we really do. They
pay for education. What they do is changing
the lives of children of blindness.”

Meet Kosair Kid®
Vance Lovett
W
hen Emily and Brandon Lovett
found out she was expecting
her fourth child about five years
ago, they didn’t know their new son Vance
would be born with special needs, including
blindness.
And they had no idea they’d be moving
to the Louisville area, home to one of only
two preschools in the nation that provides
early intervention for visually impaired kids.
They learned about the move when
Emily was four months pregnant. Brandon
serves in the Army, and he was transferred
from Fort Jackson, S.C., to Fort Knox.
Vance was born with Norrie disease, a
genetic disorder that primarily affects the
eyes and usually leads to blindness. The
Lovetts soon learned about Louisville-based
Visually Impaired Preschool Services and
were relieved to find out they could get a lot
of help for Vance.
“It all kind of fell into place here at the
right time, with the right people,” Emily
said.
‘Definitely a boy’
Vance’s condition is rare and affects
everyone slightly differently. He has some
behavioral issues, his mother said, and is
developmentally delayed. Otherwise, he’s a
healthy and happy little boy who likes to
play with big brother Max’s Legos.
“He’s fun and rambunctious. He likes
to be very silly,” she said. “He’s coming
out of his shell more lately and we’re
seeing new sides to him. He’s definitely
a boy — he’s a roughhouse.”
Vance is also “very sweet and
affectionate” toward his family, his
mother said, which includes siblings
Max, 9, Makenzie, 7, and Adyson, who’s
almost 6.
Vance attends VIPS four days a week
and receives therapy at the Kids Center
for Pediatric Therapies. Both organizations
receive substantial support from Kosair
Charities.
His mother says Vance loves going to
VIPS, and she is grateful to its staff for
making her feel like she and Brandon aren’t
alone in the struggle of raising a special
needs child. “Imagine if your ship wrecks,
VIPS would be the Coast Guard,” she said.
Play ball!
Vance loves baseball, and like his dad, he
roots for the Cincinnati Reds and New York
Yankees. “He loves the Yankees announcers,”
Brandon said.
Baseball will soon
come into play in
a bigger way in
Vance’s world. He
was chosen to
receive a custom
playhouse from
Kosair Charities,
and the one that’s
under construction
at the YouthBuild
facility in
Louisville will have a baseball theme. It will
include an outdoor area that resembles a
dugout and some cool baseball chairs.
“They haven’t let us see too much,” Emily
said. “They want to surprise us.”
They do know it will have a large play
area for Vance and his siblings and sensory
toys similar to those he uses at VIPS,
including a “ball pit” like you’d see at Chuck
E. Cheese or McDonald’s and a hammocklike swing that hangs from the ceiling.
There will be a desk where Vance can
sit with his Braille writer, and the designers
will add various textures throughout the
house so Vance will know where he is by the
feeling under his feet.
Deep gratitude
Emily said receiving the playhouse is
a unique opportunity. “We’re just beside
ourselves with feelings of gratitude for the
people at VIPS who nominated us and for
the people at Kosair Charities who chose us,
and for doing such a thorough job to make
sure it’s designed specifically for Vance,” she
said.
Considering that Kosair Charities is
a major supporter of VIPS, Emily said,
“the charities are huge to us. Without
the support of Kosair Charities, VIPS
wouldn’t be as fantastic as it is. All of the
early intervention for Vance has been
life-changing for him.”

O
n Dec. 7, over 400 children and their families attended the
annual Kosair Kids® Holiday Party at the Crowne Plaza in

Kosair Kids® Night
at the Louisville
Zoo
osair Kids® were joined by local officials, including Jeffersontown Mayor Bill
Dieruf, and community residents on Dec. 10 at the Kosair Charities East
Campus for a special holiday surprise. Just days before, a giant 6’x6’
Amazon Smile box was delivered to campus—with the
children having no clue what was inside.
Employees of Amazon Fulfillment Center arrived to
reveal what was in the mystery box during a morning
press conference. The front of the giant box was
ripped open to reveal items from the Kosair Charities
East Campus’ Amazon Holiday Wish List.
Needless to say, Kosair Kids® couldn’t wait to
get their hands on all of the new toys, games,
and therapy tools. All items donated by Amazon
are kept on campus so that every child needing
therapy will have access to them. Thank you,
Amazon, for your generous support of Kosair
Charities East Campus.
Kosair Charities Advisory
Council Decides on
First-time Grants
O
n December 16th the Kosair Charities Advisory Council
granted a total of $100,000 to four local, non-profit
organizations: West End School, Carriage House,
Bluegrass Training and Therapy Center and the University of
Louisville Physicians Bingham Clinic. Advisory Council members
identified four organizations to receive a $25,000 grant from Kosair
Charities. These gifts will continue Kosair Charities’ mission of protecting the health and well being of Kosair Kids®.
The Kosair Charities Advisory Council, consists of leaders in the community, serving as the consulting arm to the board of
directors. They aid in maintaining Kosair Charities’ focus on meeting the healthcare needs of children in Kentucky and Southern
Indiana.
Each organization plans to use the grants to fund specific efforts in 2015:
n The West End School will renovate the middle school classroom, kitchen, dining room, game room, laundry room
and proposed theatre space. Currently there is only one bathroom serving approximately 50 students and faculty. However, the
school is expected to increase enrollment over the next 3 years, creating great need for a new bathroom and other improvements.
n The Carriage House will use the additional funding to enhance a new classroom that began renovations in August of
2014. The focus will be placed on basic developmental and prerequisite skills such as attention, following basic routines, direction, motor skills, social communication and social play. This program will help children with identified disabilities develop skills
needed to move into a preschool classroom with their peers.
n Bluegrass Training and Therapy Center will use the $25,000 in grant funding to complete their youth service
center. The former facility was ruined by fire. The new facility will be able to host not only staff offices and training but allow appropriate space for service delivery and facilitating mentoring, employment, education and personal wellness programs.
n The University of Louisville Physicians Bingham Clinic plans to order new computer monitors for
their clinicians, in addition to video cameras, play materials for therapeutic work and new furnishings for offices and the waiting
room.
H
undreds of children and their
families showed up in their
“not-so-scary” Halloween best
on Oct. 15 for the annual Kosair Kids®
night at the Louisville Zoo. For one night
a year in October, Kosair Charities rents
the Louisville Zoo so that Kosair Kids®
from supported agencies like Spina Bifida
Association, The Kids Center, Down
Syndrome of Louisville, Heuser Hearing
Institute, and Visually Impaired Preschool
Services can go trick-or-treating with ease.
Keeping the zoo closed to the general
public during this event allows for a line-free
and safe environment for all kids and their
families to enjoy. The weather during the
event was less than perfect but that didn’t
dampen anyone’s Halloween spirit. Each
child who attended left with a big smile and
even bigger bag of candy!
BOO to You
Dustin and Jill Childers, parents to
Kosair Kid® Addie, hosted the third annual
BOO to YOU Halloween event on Oct. 25
at a brand-new location. In previous years
the event has been held at the Childers
home, but in an effort to expand and
raise more money for Kosair Kids®,
they moved it to the Kentucky
Renaissance Faire in Eminence, Ky.
Thanks to the countless hours of
decorating put in by the Childers
Halloween costume contest winners won an Amazon Kindle.
family, walking into the Renaissance Faire
was like walking into a Halloween dream.
Over 300 children and their families
attended the event and enjoyed the hay
pyramid, pumpkin patch, pony rides,
face painting, bounce houses, corn maze,
delicious food, story time, haunted trail and
a trick-or-treat trail.
The event was a huge success, raising

Remembering
Bob Beatty
“I’ve been given a big heart,
and the chance to show
K
osair Charities lost a great friend
when Bob Beatty, the creator of the
Kosair Shrine Classic Car Giveaway,
benefiting Kosair Charities, passed away in late
December.
Beatty and his team of volunteers organized
the rebuilding and raffling of a vintage car
to raise money for children who need organ
transplants.
The event, which many people called the
Bob Beatty Car Raffle, celebrated its sixth year
in November 2014 by raffling off a 1937 Ford
Club Coupe. To date, it has brought in more
than $500,000 for Kosair Charities and Trust
for Life.
Beatty started the raffle after he received a
heart transplant in 2007. He named his new
heart “Ernie,” and he wanted to find a way to
pay others back for helping him get a second
lease on life.
“I’ve been given a big heart, and the chance
to show everyone just how big and caring it can
be,” he once said.
No one knows the love in Bob’s heart better
than his family. Left to treasure Bob’s memory
are his wife of 45 years, Janet Back Beatty; his
son, D. Dwayne Beatty; sister and brother-inlaw, Patty and David Johnson; sister-in-law,
Janet S. Beatty; along with many nieces and
nephews.
Upbeat personality
Beatty once described himself as “the
nicest guy in the world,” and people at Kosair
Charities heartily agreed.
Ken Reiss, a Kosair Charities board
member, who knew Beatty from their
involvement in the Kosair Shrine, remembers
him as “very much” the extrovert.
Beatty was an entrepreneur, he said,
working in real estate and selling cars and
mobile homes. “He was sales-oriented,
and very positive,” Reiss recalled. “He was
everywhere.”
Beatty also had “a great fondness
for antique, collectible cars,” Reiss said.
“That was his primary interest. And he was a
dedicated, determined individual who tried
everyone just how big and
caring it can be”
Bob Beatty
to demonstrate his love
for the Shrine, Trust for Life, and
Kosair Charities. He had a lot of help from
volunteers in and out of the Shrine, but ran
the raffle top to bottom.”
Show must go on
With Beatty’s passing, it’s only fair to
wonder what will happen to the Kosair
Shrine Classic Car Giveaway. After all,
Beatty was tireless, relentlessly traveling all
over the city and state to hawk the raffle
tickets. He and his team were known to visit
more than 30 shows each year.
“He was 24/7 on the raffle,” Reiss said,
noting that his efforts helped
collect more than a half-million
dollars in six years.
But there is good news:
Beatty’s team of loyal volunteers
has committed to running the
raffle in the future, and they’ve
secured cars for the next two
years. Soon the volunteers will
begin selling tickets to win a
1940 Ford Coupe, whose official
name is “Black Cherry.”
It’s the least they can do for
their friend, Bob Beatty — and for Kosair
Kids® who need organ transplants.

Third Annual Reach Out
for Kosair Kids®
The Kosair Charities Co-Ed Softball
Tournament and the Power of Five
S
O
n Saturday, Aug. 2, the Glasgow
Shrine Club and Willie 94.1
teamed up for the third annual
Reach Out for Kosair Kids® at the Cave City
Convention Center.
More than 1,000 people attended this
free, kid-friendly event. Face painting,
inflatables, a cake walk, scavenger hunt,
mascots, karaoke, and games gave the kids
plenty to do. The adults enjoyed a bug run,
antique car and tractor show, karaoke, a live
and silent auction, and the Zaxby’s wing
eating contest, also known as the “Wing
Chomp.”
For the past three years, a quilt has been
made to honor local Kosair Kids®. The
names of children who have benefited from
the Kosair Charities Special Kids Program
were stitched onto the quilts. This
year’s quilt represented 84 Kosair
Kids® and was sold at auction for
$1,250. Thank you to Janice
and Gleta Stalcup of J C & G
Embroidery, who continue to
make these beautiful quilts
each year.
Other community
events, including the
Glasgow Shrine
Club’s Bug Run
and road blocks in
Tompkinsville, the
Metcalfe Mud Run for
Kosair Kids® and
“Willie-Fest,” a concert
hosted by Willie 94.1,
help raise money and awareness for
Reach Out for Kosair Kids® and
Kosair Charities throughout the year.
Reach Out for Kosair Kids® continues to
grow with the help of the Glasgow Shrine
Club, Masonic lodges, Eastern Star chapters,
Metcalfe County Fair Board, Willie 94.1
and numerous businesses and individuals in
Barren, Allen, Hart, Metcalfe and Monroe
counties. The 2014 event raised over
$24,600 for Kosair Charities. To date, Reach
Out for Kosair Kids® has raised $61,700,
and plans for the 2015 event are already
underway.
SAVE THE DATE:
Aug. 1, 2015, fourth annual Reach Out for
Kosair Kids® at the Cave City Convention
Center. Parade starts at 8:30 a.m.
ixteen softball teams traveled to
Radcliff, Ky., from across the
state to participate in the Kosair
Charities Co-Ed Softball Tournament on
July 19. Tournament directors Andrea and
Casey Palmer were determined to make the
2014 tournament the most successful in its
existence because it was a huge year—the
tournament was turning five.
When their daughter, Lexi, was just
seven weeks old, Andrea and Casey learned
that she had contracted a rare disease called
infantile botulism. The Palmers spent five
weeks at the hospital watching helplessly
as Lexi became temporarily paralyzed and
intubated. Thankfully, Lexi reacted well
to a special medication and the Palmers
could finally take their firstborn home.
Unfortunately, $300,000 worth of medical
bills also made the trip with them.
Kosair Charities learned about the Palmers’
story and immediately stepped in to relieve
the financial burden by helping with medical
bills, ambulance rides and six months of
therapy. Grateful for all that Kosair Charities
had done for them, The Palmers decided to
put together a co-ed softball tournament to
raise funds to benefit future Kosair Kids® like
Lexi.
Five years later, Lexi and the Kosair
Charities Co-Ed Softball Tournament both
turned five. Lexi is now a happy, healthy
little girl who started kindergarten this
past August and is the best sister around to
younger siblings Silas and Layla. In its five
years of existence, the tournament has raised
$55,500 for Kosair Kids® (2010-$3,000,
2011-$7,200, 2012-$12,700, 2013$15,200, 2014-$17,400).
Thanks to all of the participants,
sponsors and volunteers who
participated in the 2014 softball
tournament. And thank you, Palmer
family, for your unwavering determination
in helping future Kosair Kids® these past
five years. Kosair Charities is lucky to have
friends like you.

“Editorial Without Words”
What is the
Silent Messenger?
T
his 1970 photograph, “Editorial
Without Words,” now more
commonly known as the Silent
Messenger, was taken at a Shriners’ picnic in
Evansville, Ind.
The photo captured a Shriner, Al
Hortman, who stooped down and picked
up 5-year-old Bobbi Jo Wright, along
with her crutches, and carried her across a
gravel parking lot. Bobbi Jo was born with
cerebral palsy, resulting in several orthopedic
problems and multiple surgeries in a Shriner
hospital.
This photo has been brought to “life”
with statues depicting the Shriner carrying
a child. It symbolizes the Shriners’ mission,
stating that “No Man Stands So Tall as
When He Stoops to Help a Child.”
Over the years these statues have become
synonymous with the Shriners’ mission
to help children. They sit outside the 22
Shriner hospitals throughout the United
States and Mexico. In Louisville, there are
18 additional Silent Messenger statues that
represent the lasting commitment that
Kosair Charities has for our community
and the children of Kentucky and Southern
Indiana.
These statues are strategically placed
around the community to honor those who
carry our mission.

The UPS Golf ClassicTurns 20!
T
he 20th annual UPS Golf Classic took place on the beautiful Saturday morning of
Sept. 20, 2014, at Quail Chase Golf Course. More than 150 participants enjoyed a
sunny round of golf, a delicious barbecue lunch, and a raffle for big prizes, such as a
50-inch HDTV and BOSE speakers. The UPS Golf Classic is one of Kosair Charities’ largest
fundraisers on the golf course—and has been for quite some time.
The UPS Golf Classic was originally created as a day for UPS employees to play a round
of golf together. After a friend’s ailing child received financial help from Kosair Charities,
founders of the scramble decided to turn the event into a fundraiser and donate all proceeds
to benefit future Kosair Kids®. The first UPS Golf Classic raised an astounding $26,000.
Thanks to a long list of volunteers and committee members along the way, the scramble
celebrated its 20th birthday in 2014.
A very special thanks is owed to Aaron Sheckles, Angela Chumbley, David Wright and
Scott Mundy (the current UPS Golf Classic committee) for helping to raise more than
$66,000 at the 2014 UPS Golf Classic.
Just Fore Kids
Golf Classic
With the help of more than 100 golfers,
the 18th annual Just Fore Kids Golf Classic,
held on Aug. 25 at Hurstbourne Country
Club, raised more than $175,000 to support
Kosair Charities and Ronald McDonald
House.
After a delicious brunch and round
of golf, players made their way to the
clubhouse to bid on luxury silent auction
items and eat dinner with their team. After
winners of the Classic were announced,
golfers were touched to meet Kosair Kid®
Addie and her parents—Dustin and Jill
Childers. During dinner, Dustin and Jill
talked about the impact Kosair Charities has
had on their family, and they thanked each
golfer for participating.
Special thanks is owed to Bobby
Clarkson and his committee for making the
18th annual Just Fore Kids Golf Classic one
of the best yet.
Fat Boy Golf Classic
Shane Harding chaired the 11th annual Fat
Boy Classic held on Aug. 2 at Wildwood Country
Club. The day started out with a few showers, but
that didn’t stop the golfers from enjoying what
turned out to be a beautiful day. After the round,
golfers returned to the patio for lunch and to see
who won the Fat Boy Classic green jacket. This
year’s event raised more than $1,500 for Kosair
Charities.

Innocents.
As always, the Edlins did not disappoint.
Between a round of golf, boxed lunches,
luxury goody bags and a post-round evening
of hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and silent
auction, the golfers had a fantastic day
raising money for Kosair Kids®.

Scramble’s terrific live and silent
auction items had participants
bidding until the last

auction that included many popular golf
items. Thank you to our major sponsors—
