UK Men's Basketball Team to Host Hurricane Sandy Telethon

LEXINGTON – Humbled by the devastation of Superstorm Sandy, the University of Kentucky men’s basketball team, in conjunction with WKYT, will host a telethon Wednesday from 7–8 p.m. EST. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to the American Red Cross to benefit the victims of the catastrophic storm.

The telethon will air throughout the state on UK/IMG Sports Network affiliates, as members of the UK men’s basketball team will take phone calls and donations. More details and telethon phone numbers will be released later, according to a news release from UK.

During non-telethon hours, people can call the Red Cross at 859-253-1331 or 800-RED-CROSS. Donations will also be accepted at www.redcross.org.

The special event will also stream live at WKYT.com.
