"We’re proud to support families and Kosair Kids affected by cancer,” Vicky Weber, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Kosair Kids, said. “Our agencies such as Gilda’s Club, Camp Quality, James Graham Brown Cancer Center, University of Louisville Cancer Research Center and more provide services to many of these families."
About Kosair Charities: Since 1923 Kosair Charities has had one primary mission – helping children in need.

About Hats for Hope: Hats for Hope began in 2004 when a handful of volunteers from KFC, YUM! Brands, Inc., Unified Foodservice Purchasing Co-op, LLC and Golden State Foods were looking for a way to raise funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer. Twelve years later and over half a million dollars later, Hats for Hope draws hundreds each year to an event of support and celebration of lives affected by cancer.
