Badabing in the Bluegrass at O’Neill’s to Benefit Old Friends

GEORGETOWN, KY— MARCH 25, 2009 —It’s an offer you can’t refuse.

Thursday April 2nd will be “Badabing in the Bluegrass Night” at O’Neill’s in Lexington, starring comedian and actor Frank Santorelli (The Sopranos). Proceeds from the event, presented by O’Neill’s Irish Pub and radio’s WLXX 92.9 The Bear, will benefit Old Friends, the Thoroughbred Retirement Facility in Georgetown, KY.
