Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear and First Lady Jane Beshear hosted a Kentucky Proud dinner at the Governor's Mansion in Frankfort on July 23, 2009. Here is the official press release that followed the event. Here is Savoring Kentucky's post-dinner post.

With support from the Kentucky Department of Agriculture, the Governor's Office of Agricultural Policy, and other donors, more than 70 people enjoyed this wonderful -- and replicable -- dinner.

These are the sources, donors, and contributors for the meal and the beautiful, heavy Kentucky Proud gift baskets each family took home from the dinner. Savoring Kentucky thanks them, every one.
