We organize all the logistics (approximately eleventy billion!) of Lexington's RunTheBluegrass Half-Marathon which is wonderfully hosted at Keeneland and traverses 13.1 miles through many of Lexington's majestic Thoroughbred Farms. We handle all of the local and nationwide marketing and work to involve every single Bluegrass community member we can - donating or investing a very large percentage of the revenues back into area businesses, artists, entrepreneurs and other good non-profit organizations. (Full numbers, here.)
A series of dinner events pairing great foods with the best Kentucky Bourbons.
All paired with our lives' most meaningful, most stirring conversations.
STIR launched in 2016 at the award-winning Holly Hill Inn in Midway, Kentucky and is currently evolving into v2.0 for 2017 and 2018!
Every year, we host a party at one of Lexington's favorite establishments, inviting the public and presenting awards to individuals who you voted the "Best of the Bluegrass" for that year!
We now present six annual awards: Most Admired Entrepreneur, Most Inspirational Social Advocate, Most Impactful Artist, The Most Encouraging Kentuckian, Most Admired Kentucky-Bred and Favorite Local Restauranteur!
Because new innovations and ideas often need either capital or connections to customers, or both, we aim to provide both to aspiring Kentucky entrepreneurs through our DreamFuel grant project. In 2016, we granted $12,500 to new ventures getting off the ground around our Commonwealth and for 2017-18 we have $20,000 earmarked for investments!
