The University of Kentucky Athletics Department and Toyota were the two largest donors to a task force that recently developed a plan to revitalize Rupp Arena and the surrounding portion of downtown. UK Athletics gave $50,000 and Toyota gave $35,000 to the group, which raised $380,950, according to a list obtained by the Herald-Leader under the Open Records Act. Many of the other donors included members of the task force, including Greg Goodman, whose Mount Brilliant Family Foundation gave $10,000. W.T. Young LLC gave $20,000. Young's son Chris served on the task force.
