Adams & Sons' Owensboro Blue Bridge Tie Proceeds To Benefit Owensboro Health Foundation

In honor of the 75th Anniversary of the Owensboro Blue Bridge, local retailer Adams & Sons will be selling a total of 75 exclusively designed ties depicting that bridge.

The Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce agreed to buy the first tie and Mayor Ron Payne presented this tie to Governor Beshear when he visited the Kentucky League of Cities conference at the Owensboro Convention Center on September 30, 2015.

Proceeds from the sale will be donated by Adams & Sons to Owensboro Health Foundation to help meet the needs of patients who are less fortunate. Adams & Sons’ donation will help pay for expenses such as travel, lodging and medical costs for those individuals.

Since its inception, Owensboro Health Foundation has supported numerous projects impacting the lives of the people in our region.

In 2014, more than 8,000 of our area’s family members, friends and neighbors benefited through programs funded by this foundation.
