University of Kentucky Varsity Letter Association

Fifth Annual Cathy Coop Benefit

The K Club is so excited and honored to be holding the Fifth Annual Cathy Coop Benefit for Ovarian Cancer here at the K House this year. Each year, this is their one and only fundraiser. Individuals are not charged to attend the benefit; therefore, the funds raised to help those in-need, mostly come from silent and live auction items. This year many great enticing items are being offered for attendees to bid on. 


The Cathy Coop Fund has been created to honor the life of Cathy Wolterman Coop and benefits patients suffering from primary peritoneal or ovarian cancer who are receiving care from the Markey Cancer Center in Lexington. When Cathy was going through treatment and spoke to others doing the same, she realized there were a lot of people struggling to meet theirs or their families basic needs. It was her desire to set up a fund to help ease this burden.


Since Cathy left us in January 2014, over $175,000 has been raised and one hundred percent of that has gone directly to support patients and families battling this horrible disease. While the money has been used for many different things, some of the examples include: grocery and gas gift cards, tires for someone driving long distance, hotel rooms, meals, childcare and a wheel chair ramp for a patient’s home.

We hope you will join us at the K Club this November 10, 2018 at 7pm for this great cause.  Please RSVP by October 30th by clicking the tab below:
