LEXINGTON, Ky (LEX 18) - Matt Jones, host of Kentucky Sports Radio and Hey Kentucky!, announced Monday that Big Blue Nation raised over $82,000 for the Jared Lorenzen Memorial Fund.
The former UK quarterback was a frequent contributor to KSR and a longtime friend of Jones. Lorenzen died earlier this month at the age of 38, leaving behind two young children.
Jones and his colleagues decided to start a memorial fund in Lorenzen's name that will pay for his two children to go to college. A portion of sales (22 percent..in honor of Lorenzen's number) at KSBar and Grille this weekend were donated to the fund and the hosts also organized a gofundme page.
It didn't take long for Big Blue Nation to raise $82,500 in loving memory of the "hefty lefty."
