KET Summer Celebration 2014

KET’s 26th annual Summer Celebration takes place Friday, June 6 from 7 p.m. to midnight at Donamire Farm in Lexington. This year’s theme is “Sizzle and Salsa,” and there will be dancing, more than 300 tropical treasures in the silent auction, bongo drums, conga lines, and so much more.

Club KET is also spicing things up with a bongo beat, Caribé café, music by the Jimmy Church Band and optional salsa dance lessons. In partnership with Arthur Murray, special guest Lacey Schwimmer, a professional ballroom dancer best known for her appearances on So You Think You Can Dance? (2007-2008) and Dancing with the Stars (2008-2011), will demonstrate her mirror ball moves.

University of Kentucky football coach Mark Stoops and his wife, Chantel, are serving as honorary chairs. Don and Mira Ball of Lexington are hosting the event.

Proceeds from Summer Celebration support the programs and services of KET.
