Bonnier Events, producers of the upcoming Kentucky Open Season Sportsman’s Expo in Paducah, will be collecting non-perishable food items and household goods to help aid in relief efforts for those affected by the tornadoes last month in Kentucky. The Expo is set for January 14-16 at the Paducah-McCracken County Convention & Expo Center.
In addition, Bonnier Events will match the monetary value of all items donated, thus doubling the value of the donation.
For every non-perishable food item or other household good donated, attendees will receive a coupon for a free soda. The coupons will be distributed at the door after the donation is given and can be redeemed at any concession stand.
“We would like to give back to the community in the Paducah area that has been stricken by the tornados last month,” said Chris O’Hara, Vertical Outdoor Director, Bonnier Events. “We encourage all attendees, who are able, to bring a non-perishable food item or household good to help their fellow neighbors, who are in need. The area has certainly gone through a lot in the last month and we want to offer our support as they continue to regroup and rebuild.”
Paducah is less than 30 miles away from both Benton and Mayfield, two of the towns hit hardest by the December 10 tornadoes, which swept through Western Kentucky.
