Summer Celebration 2023: Be True to Your School

Saturday June 10, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 11:59 pm EDT

Summer Celebration Homecoming King and Queen, Eli and Dr. Mary Lynne Capilouto

Thank you to our sponsors, guests, and auction winners for making KET’s 35th annual Summer Celebration on June 10 a record-breaking success.  A pep rally for pomp, possibility and school pride, there was something for everyone at Be True to Your School:  our very own Homecoming royalty and float, superfans, caps and gowns, yearbook photos, a Straight A’s auction, and School of Rock dance party. Thank you for waving the flag for KET, the state’s largest classroom.

Honorary Chairs UK President Eli and Dr. Mary Lynne Capilouto and Donamire Farm hostess Mira Ball join us in celebrating the 960 coeds in attendance—all sporting their true colors.  Much more than a fun event, Summer Celebration in one day generates the most in community support to advance KET’s mission.

There’s still time to join the party! Support KET by participating in our last chance auction and secure live performances, jewelry, wellness packages and more. The auction will remain open until Friday, June 16. Don’t miss your chance at one of these best-of-class items!
