Chickabiddy turns blue!…. raising funds for Relay for Life;
LOUISA, Ky. — It may have been raining yesterday, but the smiles were as bright as the rainbow sprinkles on top of the frozen yogurt at Chickabiddy, as former UK Wildcat, Julius Mays was there signing autographs and taking pictures with fans to raise money for Relay for Life.
On a signing tour throughout the state, Mays was on hand at Chickabiddy Frozen Yogurt in Louisa Wednesday evening in conjunction with a fundraising event for Relay for Life, a cancer research program.
Mays, who is from Marion, Indiana, came to the University of Kentucky from Wright State College in Ohio as a senior during the 2012-2013 season, playing guard position for the Wildcats. “I’m glad I could come here and help with a great cause like this.” Mays said.
Accompanying Mays at the event was former Wildcat, Jeff Sheppard, who played for UK from 1994-1998, helping win two NCAA Championships in ’96 and ’98.
“We’re excited to be back in Louisa. We had a great response last year when we were here with Darius Miller. ” Sheppard said. After visiting a few schools in Pike County on Friday, Sheppard said he and Mays will be at Freedom Ford in Ivel, from 5-6:30 pm.
Dressed in blue, UK fans of all ages lined up to say hello to Julius, and get autographs and pictures, as well as a $5 charity cup of frozen yogurt.
Chickabiddy owners, Bub and Amy Adkins explained that all proceeds from the sales at this event will go to the Relay for Life program. Amy Adkins also said there will be a Relay for Life fundraiser May 31, at the LCHS football field, from 6pm-midnight. More details on this event will be available soon.
