80s colors and graphics that say I WANT MY KET, Summer Celebrations, 33rd ANNUAL.

33rd Annual Summer Celebration: I Want My KET
SATURDAY, June 12, 2021 | 7 p.m. to Midnight | Donamire Farm, Lexington

Let’s celebrate again—together—at an audacious 80s party! In a throwback to big hair, bigger shoulders and thriller dance moves, rewind with KET—safely—to when video influenced generations. KET has always been a transformational force in learning, arts and citizenship. Don’t stop believin’ in what television can and should be. Your support makes KET, like, totally awesome.

    • Rock Star—Hostess: Mira Ball
    • Flashdance—Music: The Jimmy Church Band
    • Bodacious Bazaar—Sponsored by Farmer’s Jewelry. Silent Auction includes: UK basketball lower-arena season tickets, vacations, jewelry, furnishings, fine art and 300 bargains! Bidding begins June 5.

    • Money for Nothing—$1500 for reserved tables of six. Sponsors receive added benefits. Includes dinner, open bar, entertainment (and no speeches!)
