Kosair Charities making seasons bright

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - In line with the Christmas season, Kosair Charities spent its lunchtime making seasons bright.

Leaders of 53 local charities got invitations for lunch today. Kosair gave out a total of $1.6 million to the groups that focus on pediatric care. Today's big giveaway was a complete surprise.

"We like to say we've helped over 3 million children in the Kentuckiana area and we could not do that without the services and partnerships without all of the other organizations here." Jerry Ward, Kosair Charities Board Chair said.

The luncheon also included a video recap, holiday bingo and a guest appearance from Santa.
