  • Ritchie appreciates support for Fun For Everyone Project

    I can’t believe it’s been a year since I began with the Fun For Everyone Project. I’ve met some amazing people and have done some amazing things.

    But I’m not done yet. We have a lot of things planned for 2014 like Party in the Park on Aug. 16 at Optimist Park in Vine Grove and a 5k. We also have a variety of fundraisers planned at local restaurants.

    We also are 501(c)(3) certified. We have raised about $35,000 so far. I would like to thank all the people in Vine Grove and in Hardin County who have been supporting me along the way.
