May 27, 2020 11 AM Update:
2020 Mr. and Miss Kentucky Basketball Awards Ceremony To Be Held Virtually on Sunday, June 28th.
The Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation will present the first-ever virtual Mr. and Miss Kentucky Basketball Awards Ceremony on Sunday, June 28th. Further details will be released in the upcoming weeks. This week the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation staff will begin reaching out directly to candidates, award winners and ticket holders with more information.
“While we understand that this is the safest option for everyone, we are sad that we were not able to host our 2020 Mr. and Miss Kentucky Basketball Awards as originally planned in April and although we had hoped to reschedule the event to be held in person on June 28th, unfortunately this will not be possible,” said Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation Executive Director, Lindy Lamkin. “Although our Awards Ceremony is going to look a bit different this year, the meaning of the moment remains the same. This event is intended to recognize each of our candidates and award winners and their accomplishments on and off the basketball court over their careers.”
Updates will be posted at www.mrandmisskybasketball.com regularly. Please direct any questions to Jennifer Hunt at JenniferHunt@kylionseye.org.

THE KENTUCKY LIONS EYE FOUNDATION
The Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. With over 200 Lions Clubs across Kentucky, our volunteers provided more than 40,000 FREE vision screenings to Kentuckians last year. KLEF also provided funding for over 30 eye surgeries to people with limited insurance in the Commonwealth last year. Each year, more than 2,000 Kentuckians contact the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation seeking assistance in purchasing eye glasses and are referred to their local Lions Club for assistance. Our reach extends across the Commonwealth and our goal is to help as many people as possible in need of vision care. We can’t do this alone. We need your help to continue our great work. Please consider getting involved in your local Lions Club – click here – to find the Club closest to you. To learn more about the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation visit our website – www.kylionseye.org.
