Brain Injury Assoc. of KY Hosts “1st Uncorked Spirits” Benefit Event



Louisville, KY – Chris McCarren, Kentucky Derby-winning jockey, will be the celebrity host of the first BIAK Uncorked Spirits event.  The proceeds of this event will support the Brain Injury Association of Kentucky (BIAK).   

         

BIAK’s Uncorked Spirits, an event open to the community, will be held on Friday, September 28th, 2007, from 7-10 pm at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. The event will include samplings of Kentucky wines from local vineyards and heavy hors d’ouevres.  There will be a spectacular live auction and several raffles throughout the evening.  The ticket price per person is $75.00. Event chairs include Tina Ball, Patty Jackson and Chris Aldridge.

         

For 21 years, BIAK has helped people with brain injuries and their families learn to live with the life changes that occur with brain injury.  Whether sitting together at the hospital, giving encouraging support through rehabilitation, helping to find financial assistance, respite or day-support programs, practicing strategies for everyday life, supporting a return to work or helping to create a new business, BIAK assists survivors and families through the entire process in creating a full and meaningful life.  This event will help BIAK to continue their efforts to provide support throughout Kentucky.


The proceeds from the event will also support the BIAK Children’s Equine Safety Program.  The program is designed to strengthen the safety message that underlies all children’s equine activities through the use of videos, commercials and curriculum materials. 


According to Melinda Mast, Executive Director of the Brain Injury Association of Kentucky, “We are so excited about this new event for BIAK.  It will continue to increase awareness of the good work that BIAK does and our unwavering support of people with brain injuries.  Also, as we live in the horse Capital of the world, we wanted to make a difference in the lives of people who work with horses.  Kentucky boasts equine activities from racing to trail riding, polo, dressage and pleasure riding.  This event is designed to celebrate our unbridled spirit in Kentucky while giving back to our community.”  

         

The Brain Injury Association of Kentucky (BIAK) is a non-profit organization dedicated solely to improving the lives of those affected by brain injury.  Since 1986, BIAK has helped people through advocacy, education, prevention, research, services and support.  BIAK is committed to helping people discover that life after brain injury, although different, can still be rich and meaningful.
