BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - The Greenwood Optimist Club will host the 23rd annual Country Ham Breakfast Saturday from 7-10 a.m. (CST) at 440 Main Restaurant, located on the Square in downtown Bowling Green.
Coaches and players from both Western Kentucky University's men's and women's basketball teams will be at the event, which is sponsored by Jr. Food Stores, US Bank, Kirby Funeral Chapels and 440 Main Restaurant.
All proceeds from the breakfast benefit the Greenwood Optimist Club College Heights Foundation Scholarship Fund. The fund provides academic scholarships for Bowling Green and Warren County students each year, as well as fifth-year aid to assist Hilltopper and Lady Topper basketball players in completing degree requirements after their athletic eligibility is complete.
The cost of the event, at which a country ham breakfast with all the trimmings is served, is $8. Tickets are available at all US Bank locations.
