LOUISVILLE (MAY 24, 2019) – On Thursday evening, University of Louisville Cardinals Basketball Head Coach Chris Mack and his wife, Christi, hosted their Sneaker Ball Charity Event at the Omni Louisville Hotel to benefit the Mack Family Foundation and its community outreach programs.

The Macks and Louisville celebrities, including Luke Hancock and Lancaster Gordon, mingled with over 177 guests over the course of the evening that opened with a cocktail reception and silent auction and closed with dinner and a live auction.

The charity event raised nearly $100,000 to support the Mack Family Foundation, including a $15,000 personal pledge from the Macks.

"For people to take the time to come out to find out what our foundation is all about. It’s all about serving and inspiring kids here in the city of Louisville," said Chris Mack.

Kent Taylor, anchor at WAVE 3 News and four-time winner of Kentucky TV Sportscaster of the Year, served as the emcee of the evening.

Since its launch in 2016, the Mack Family Foundation has installed six Coach Mack’s Corners, collectively providing 3,850 books and 80 magazine subscriptions to more than 2,500 students daily.

February 2017 Pleasant Hill Academy Cincinnati, Ohio
August 2017 Rockdale Academy Elementary Cincinnati, Ohio
December 2017 North College Hill Elementary North College Hill, Ohio
February 2018 Mary A. Goetz Elementary Ludlow, Kentucky

The proceeds from Thursday evening’s Sneaker Ball will support the next Coach Mack’s Corner in Louisville, providing in-need students with access to the tools they need to improve their literacy and an environment that will foster a lifelong love of reading.
