04/14/2017-Fund Raiser to be held for longtime CJ Sportswriter Bob White

April 14, 2017 2016-2017 News Releases

As many are aware, longtime Courier-Journal sportswriter and KHSAA Hall of Fame member Bob White was recently a victim of identity theft, losing most if not all of his accumulated resources in the scheme. Many in the area rallied behind Bob to give him a temporary lift, but a group in Louisville is organizing a major fundraiser to help continue the process of lifting both Bob’s spirits and his ability to live independently. Many of Kentucky’s coaches, athletes and officials have been positively impacted by Bob’s writing, coverage and support over the years.

The group will hold an appreciation reception for Bob on Monday night, May 15 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Frazier Hall on the campus of Bellarmine University. A minimal charge of $20 per person will be charged along with any donation attendees, or those unable to attend would like to give to the cause.

Those willing to give may send a check to the Bob White Fund, in care of Eugene “Judge” Mosley, 214 Breckenridge Lane, Suite 214, Louisville, Ky., 40207. If you have questions about the project, you can contact project organizers Billy Reed, Mike Pollio, Lloyd Gardner or David Roos.

Thanks to all who choose to be involved in this worthwhile cause for a man who has dedicated his entire adult life to high school sports and the reporting and promotion of its participants.

Commissioner Julian Tackett
