LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Kosair Charities gave $200,000 to five local groups here in WAVE Country.

Nativity Academy, La Casita Center, the Commonwealth Theater, Bridge Kids International and Lifehouse Maternity Home were the five groups who received the large donation.

"Kosair Charities does outstanding work through our entire community," Metro Councilman David James said. "And if it were not for Kosair Charities and they work that they do, many, many, many organizations wouldn't be here to help this community."
