Aurora Casket Company proud sponsor of philanthropic event
Louisville, KY — July 8, 2011 — Aurora Casket Company was the proud sponsor of the Funeral Directors Association of Kentucky’s (FDAK) Women’s Auxiliary luncheon held on June 28 at The Café in downtown Louisville. The event consisted of country favorites and original pieces performed by Strode Funeral Home’s (Tompkinsville, Kentucky) Bailey Birge and The Bailey Birge Band and a visit to Louisville Stoneware to view the transformation of raw materials into pieces of art. Attendees painted their own pieces of stoneware and a portion of studio purchases and ticket sales benefitted Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville.
“The FDAK women’s auxiliary group was delighted to partner with Louisville Stoneware in contributing a portion of all ticket sales and purchases to Kosair’s Children’s Hospital, a charity I am very passionate about,” said Andrea Brantley of Patton Funeral Homes in Brownsville, Kentucky and current president of the FDAK Women’s Auxiliary. “We had a fantastic day together while also giving back to the community.”
“Aurora Casket Company is proud to support the FDAK Women’s Auxiliary,” Lacy Robinson of Aurora Casket Company said. “The Women’s Luncheon was an incredible opportunity for women funeral professionals to come together, connect with peers and support Kosair Children’s Hospital.”
