A Celebration of Life!!!
"Bluegrass on Beshear - Pickin' Life" is held each year in honor of Jim Fred and Martha Mills of Marion, KY. Five Knights of Columbus councils and Jeff & Laura Smith sponor the event.
The inaugural event on October 12, 2014 attracted more than 150 people and raised $2500 for area life-affirming pregnancy care centers. The event won the Kentucky State K of C's Culture of Life Service award.
In 2017, "B on B" set its charity record with $10,719, despite taking place during a tropical storm.
"B on B's" 2018 goals are to provide great entertainment and food, raise awareness of our local pregnancy care centers and continue to grow in attendance & donations.
We want everyone who attends "Bluegrass on Beshear V" to have a great time!
