Hall of Fame basketball coach Denny Crum and his wife Susan are hosting the 51st Cystic Fibrosis Foundation celebrity dinner on March 9 at The Omni.
We had a ball doing a live TV trial run with celeb waiters Shannon Burton (Duke basketball) and Jason Anderson (680 ESPN Radio).
Denny Crum, he former University of Louisville national championship coach (1980, 1986), still works hard at community service projects. Coach’s friends from the sports and media world show up at the dinner to serve as waiters and hosts. The ultimate goal is to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to eradicate CF.
Susan Sweeney Crum is a well-loved former broadcast journalist who worked with me in the 1990s at WHAS before moving to WDRB and eventually Louisville Public Radio.
Thanks to both of you for your continuing service to Metro Louisville organizations that improve lives.
