April Community Events Spotlight
As you will see below, DLG attorneys and paraprofessionals enjoy being involved in the central Kentucky community and making it a better place to live. We have lots of fun events going on in April!

Clair is staying busy in the month of April! She is also participating in the Kentucky Youth & Children’s Foundation Blue Ribbon Bowl-A-Thon on April 19th at Briar Bowl in Somerset, Kentucky. The KYCF is a non-profit organization headquartered in Somerset that provides a residential treatment program for children who have been victims of childhood trauma. A portion of the event’s proceeds will go to the KYCF to help make an impact on the life of youth in their care. As a native of Somerset and the head of DLG’s Somerset office, Clair is excited to attend this event that directly benefits a local organization.
