Wildcats of all ages enjoyed the UK Alumni Association Big Blue Santa event held at the King Alumni House Saturday, Dec. 10. UK alumni and families celebrated with holiday crafts, face painting, festive treats, a gift from Santa’s Workshop and a chance to meet Big Blue Santa himself. Serious conversations with Big Blue Santa ruled the afternoon, as little Wildcats provided their wish lists and Santa made sure all the names were on the Nice List.
Wildcat made an appearance during halftime of the men’s basketball game, providing high fives and Christmas cheer.
Our alumni families also blessed the Kentucky Children’s Hospital with hundreds of gifts and handmade cards.
The Big Blue Santa event is part of the UK Alumni Association’s Legacy Initiative program which is an exclusive Life Member and Active Member benefit designed for the children of UK graduates. Legacy Initiative events provide an opportunity for UK alumni and their families to network while also educating Legacy children about their future at UK. Benefits of the Legacy Initiative program include an annual birthday card, milestone birthday gifts and invitations to exclusive Legacy Initiative events. Once a UK student, Legacy Students are eligible for the Legacy Tuition Program and the UK Alumni Association Scholars Program. Learn more about the Legacy Initiative Program at www.ukalumni.net/legacy.
