he Kentucky Derby is the “most exciting two minutes in sports,” but the Breeders’ Cup is “the richest two days in sports,” with “$26 million in purses paid out over the entire weekend.” And the Breeders’ Cup isn’t just a race, this year, it will be a Festival for all of Lexington to enjoy. The Breeders’ Cup World Championships are being held in Lexington for this first time this October. Breeders’ Cup attendance ranks fourth or fifth in North America annually and usually surpasses the attendance of all other stakes races (except for the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness, and the Oaks). The Breeders’ Cup Festival will be centered around the races, but will show off the very best Lexington has to offer — music, art, and film showcases, horse farm tours, and other special events, will fill up the entire week, beginning on Saturday, October 24.

Recycle the Runway Fashion and Fund-raising, benefiting Dress for Success Recycle the Runway The Line-UP This year’s designer line-up includes: Riley Anderson-Lusher, Stacey R. Chinn, Trisha Dailey from Stitches of Sound, Krista Druen, Joanna Haberman, Samantha Jean Moore Stitches of Esther, Shannon Terry, Amanda Wallace


ine Lexington fashion designers will vie for top honors this year when Recycle the Runway returns Oct. 6 to The Grand Reserve. Recycle the Runway is an afternoon of fashion and fundraising, featuring wearable art by Lexington designers, who have crafted couture from “recycles.” It benefits Dress for Success, located on Winchester Road. Dress for Success, a worldwide nonprofit organization founded in 1997, provides professional attire and career support for low-income women preparing for job interviews (via referring agencies). The Lexington affiliate opened its doors in October 2013 and has served over 270 women. In addition to providing clothing, Dress for Success Lexington addresses every phase of a woman’s career — providing support and resources through the job search, at the time of employment, and continuing with services and support to ensure that women keep their jobs and have the tools and encouragement to pursue success. Career development and employment retention programs and services are the cornerstone of Dress for Success Lexington, and of every woman’s experience within its doors.

We are so excited to have nine designers lending their creativity to a great cause. Not only will we be celebrating the successes we’ve had this year, but also the incredible talent we have right here in Lexington” said Analisa Wagoner, Dress for

Success Lexington Executive Director. “In addition to the designers’ models, we will also have two Dress for Success Lexington clients share their story and walk the runway to celebrate their newfound success. Our clients are why we do what we do and we look forward to seeing them shine at the

event”, said Amy Wickliffe, Dress for Success Lexington Chair. The designers and models will take center stage to showcase runway-ready garments made out of clothing otherwise deemed “unsuitable.” (Designers have eight weeks to transform a bag of clothing into a work of art.)

LEX18’s Hayley Harmon is this year’s emcee. Recycle the Runway kicks off at 11:30am at The Grand Reserve with a silent auction, luncheon and “grab bag” opportunities. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to the organization to supports its mission to empower women to be financially independent.

Think Pink October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month Lexington Runs and Walks for Breast Cancer Awareness this month include the Komen Race for the Cure, the Yes Mamm 5k, and Making Strides. BY KIM THOMAS


t was 1973 when I gave birth for the first time and became acutely aware of how important healthcare issues are for women. The POWs were coming home from VietNam, the ERA had been defeated, and Pink was definitely not in. Fashion designers were quietly eschewing the pinkish hues. No pink wedding bridesmaids or prom gowns were to be found at Pogue’s or Shillito’s — unless it was hot pink...and paisley. Back then, the color pink denoted a perceived subservience to the Establishment. Pink blouses, bikinis and decor were not found in respectable closets, businesses, kitchens, or boudoirs. Eventually, as we all know, times changed and before we could say Molly Ringwald, pink was once again popular with every Boo, Barbie and BabyGirl in the nation. Today, mention the words “Think Pink,” and everyone instantly associates it with ribbons worn to advocate breast cancer research. Paint and nail polish and other mixologists in town are consistently asked to create items in the signature Susan Komen Pink color. Cos-

metologists acquiesce to requests for polish or hair color that matches the pink ribbons. Jamberry Nail Wraps made by DaniZ are purchased with the knowledge that $5 of each sale will go to breast cancer research. Blacktie bartenders are given pink bow-ties to wear. Yes, ma’am (or Yes, Mamm if you prefer), pink is everywhere...and all this is to remind folks it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this lovely autumnal October, when we watch for pumpkin spice lattes to keep us feisty for the Breeders’ Cup at Keeneland and UK’s wins over SEC football teams. (Go Cats!) October is the time to wear pink and shop pink when it means supporting research and awareness. You don’t have to walk 500 miles, but you can definitely buy a $5 tumbler or if an establishment serves Pink Squirrels for the cause, order one and raise a glass to benefit and cheer on this important cause. Use the color to talk about and emphasize the importance of early detection and how many resources are available to ensure mammograms are easily provided. Share your stories of friends and loved ones who’ve fought this battle. Perhaps buy a Stella McCartney pink Relax bra for a more supporting role!

“Think Pink” awareness is more than research; it can also involve providing free mammograms to women who may have never had one. In Kentucky, that is sadly more likely than we’d like to think. First Lady Jane Beshear’s Horses and Hope Cancer Screening van has managed to improve those statistics, especially among the women who work in the horse industry. [Read about their success in the January 2015 issue at hamburgjournal. com]. Mrs. Beshear is once again pairing up with Keeneland to host Pink Days and highlight the importance of broadening the education of this important health concern. Pink-ribbon nail-wrap ear-bob pink-attired folks might also serve as a visual reminder to everyone to follow their doctors’ advice about self examination, family history and its impact on breast cancer, including MEN. It is possible, it has happened, so if you’re a fella, and you have a breast lump or other concern, ask your doctor about it, especially if your Mom or Sister or Pop had breast cancer. So, you have your pink suit or pink tie picked out for Keeneland’s Pink Days to support cancer screenings, but looking for more you can do? Sign up for the Making

Strides of Fayette-Lexington at Whitaker Bank Ballpark on Saturday October 24, the Race for the Cure downtown on October 3 or visit to check their Pink Days this meet! Take the thoughts of awareness and prevention with you every day, for all types of cancers, know the signs, know what to tell your doctor, what questions to ask your moms and aunts and sisters. Breast cancer can be successfully treated; it has been and will continue to be, but not if we hide our hope. We have to embrace our health; ask your medical professional to check out anything askew.


t. Joseph is hosting its first annual YES MAMM event this year. The emcee is Amber Philpott. Diana Boyer, the Director of Major Gifts at the St. Joseph Foundation, is quick to credit Philpott’s willingness to assist the community in connecting with the Think Pink resources. “Amber has been an amazing advocate on promoting breast cancer awareness throughout the Commonwealth. We would love to have hundreds of racers and walkers sign up for our inaugural 5K on October 17!”

Breast Cancer Awareness Month Events and Programming

“The bottom line is that the Yes, Mamm! program was created to remove barriers for women and men to have an annual mammogram. Simple enough. We heard stories of women foregoing mammography because of co-pays or high deductibles – or absolutely no insurance coverage of any kind. When women had to choose between a $50 deductible or buying groceries for their family – many were choosing to feed their families instead of getting this important screening. We thought that was unacceptable at Saint Joe’s.” Boyer adds, “Fewer sources were available for these patients to go. Health Departments were no longer offering this service and we had a huge outpouring when approached by the Kentucky CancerLink (formerly the Kentucky Pink Connection). Annually we serve 500 women and men. Mammography and the Yes, Mamm! program are now offered in Lexington, Berea, Nicholasville, Mt. Sterling and London. Komen has been our biggest supporter – but the need is greater than the funds – thus the 5K. We needed to raise additional funds to serve more; and this is an annual test – so we don’t want the momentum to stop!” Boyer emphasizes that every penny raised at the 5K will remain here to help the fight. “The late RJ Corman’s last gift to the cause before he died was to create the Sandra J. Adams Digital Mammography Suite at Saint Joseph Jessamine. When our friends at RJ Corman offered to sponsor the race on their beautiful property, we were humbled and appreciative. It will be a first class race. Hot food, racing shirts for all who finish, medal for all who finish, homemade ice cream, refreshments, cash prizes, door prizes and so much more! Plus Sam Dick and Amber Philpot!”

KentuckyOne Health Cancer Care hosts THE THURSDAY GROUP, a breast cancer support group, on October 1 at 6:30 pm. The meeting begins with a potluck, followed by guest speakers and open discussion. The Group began in 1975, and its goal is to create a nurturing and supportive environment where women diagnosed with breast cancer can receive information and emotional support.

The 1st annual YES, MAMM! 5K RACE will be at RJ Corman Railroad Group in Nicholasville on Saturday, October 17. The run will help raise additional funds to accommodate the demand for screenings through the Yes, Mamm! program.

The American Cancer Society reports that breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States (other than skin cancer).

They stress that early detection can lead to increased treatment options.

From the American Cancer Society: “The goal of screening exams for breast cancer is to find cancers before they start to cause symptoms

(like a lump that can be felt). Screening refers to tests and exams used

to find a disease, such as cancer, in people who do not have any symptoms. Early detection means using an approach that lets breast cancer get diagnosed earlier than otherwise might have occurred.

Breast cancers that are found because they are causing symptoms

tend to be larger and are more likely to have already spread beyond the

breast. In contrast, breast cancers found during screening exams are more likely to be smaller and still confined to the breast. The size of a breast cancer and how far it has spread are some of the most important

factors in predicting the prognosis (outlook) of a woman with this disease.

Most doctors feel that early detection tests for breast cancer save thousands of lives each year, and that many more lives could be saved if even more women and their health care providers took advantage of these tests.�

Boozy Bluegrass Chili W

hether filled with ground beef and beans (sacrilege in some parts), strictly vegetarian or vegan, lightened up with chicken, or loaded with long braised meats, a hearty bowl of chili hits the spot when cooler weather slowly sets in. For some folks, there are hard and fast rules for chili based on history and tradition. I get it. That said, I’m a rule breaker. With all due respect to the iconic Bowls of Red from Texas, the pasta-based Cincinnati 2-3-4-5-Ways, or the fresh green chile stews of New Mexico, there’s still room in the chili world for other regional riffs on chili. Spiked with Kentucky bourbon, filled with local vegetables, packed with local grass-fed beef, and kicked-up with dried chile peppers, boozy Bluegrass chili might give the big boys a run for their money. I’ve done my share of cooking with bourbon. Heading up the Culinary Art: Bourbon-Style Cooking School (four bourbon-infused courses prepared and demoed for hundreds of people) at the Kentucky Bourbon Festival for a couple of years gave me lots of time to play with bourbon and food. The pairing is fantastic. Whether applied in sweet or savory preparations, the inherent undertones of smoke, vanilla, caramel, honey, and oaky spice can lace food with complex layers of flavor. Yep. All of that.’s just downright fun. Stand down, chili police.


Tom Yates

bell pepper, 1 red bell pepper, 1 green bell pepper, 2 red sweet banana peppers, I hot banana pepper, and 3 green chili peppers. After chopping 2 medium sized Lincoln County candy onions into a large dice, I tossed them into the pepper pile before peeling, seeding, and dicing a smallish Casey County butternut squash.

BLUEGRASS BOURBON CHILI Braised chili takes time. While there’s nothing really complicated about the process, a little organization and mise en place goes a long way before kicking back with a shot of bourbon and letting the chili cook itself.

WHERE’S THE BEEF? Marksbury Farm grass-fed shoulder chuck roast. After slicing the 2 pound roast into 1 1/2” cubes, I dusted the meat with ground ancho powder, ground cumin, ground coriander, salt, pepper, and flour. I gave the pieces of meat a quick toss and set them aside.

THE BUILDING BLOCKS CHILES After toasting 3 dried Ancho chile peppers, 2 dried Guajilla chile peppers, and 1 dried Pasilla chile pepper in a dry cast iron skillet, I scooped them into bowl, poured 2 cups boiling water over the peppers, and set them aside for 30 minutes to soften. When the peppers were pliable, I pulled off the stems, removed the seeds, and dropped them into a blender. I strained any seed stragglers from the soaking liquid, poured the liquid into the blender, added 1 cup Maker’s Mark Bourbon, blitzed the peppers into a fine puree, strained the puree into a bowl, and set it aside. TOMATOES While any good quality canned tomatoes would have been great, I took advantage of our late season farmers market tomatoes. I peeled 1 1/2 pounds Pulaski County Yellow Giant, red Mule Team, and purple Cherokee heirloom tomatoes. Because there were so

few seeds to fret over, I simply chopped the tomatoes into large chunks, tumbled them (with juices) into the pepper stained blender, pureed them until they were velvety smooth, and set them aside. FRESH PEPPERS AND THE OTHER STUFF Smitten with the gorgeous array of Casey County market peppers, I went on pepper overdrive. I seeded and diced 1 yellow

THE FUN PART After cranking a flame to medium high under a 3 quart dutch oven, I drizzled the pot with vegetable oil, browned the meat in batches, and removed the pieces to a side plate before tumbling the fresh peppers and onions into the sizzling oil. As the vegetables started to sweat, I added 2 minced garlic cloves, 2 tablespoons tomato paste, 2 tablespoons cumin, 2 tablespoons ground ancho, 1 tablespoon smoked paprika, salt, and cracked black pepper. When the tomato paste caramelized around the sauteed vegetables, I carefully deglazed the pot with 1/2 cup Maker’s Mark bourbon, let the bourbon reduce by half, scraped up the fabulous sticky bits, and poured the spiked pepper puree into the incredibly hot pot. As the splattering molten puree calmed to a gentle ripple, I added 2

cups of the reserved fresh tomato puree, 2 tablespoons Oberholtzer’s Organic Sorghum, 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar,1 cup beef stock, and 2 cups chicken stock. I brought the liquid to a boil, reduced it to a simmer, tumbled the meat (with their juices) back into the pot, covered the chili, and slid it into a 350 degree oven. After 2 1/2 hours, I added the cubed butternut squash and a bit more stock to loosen the chili before returning it to the oven for another hour. During the last 15 minutes, I mixed 2 tablespoons Weisenberger white corn meal with 4 tablespoons of the hot chili broth and swirled it into the chili as a slight thickener. After pulling the chili from the oven, I splashed it with a shot of bourbon and let it rest for a few minutes before finishing with fresh parsley, slivered scallions, and sliced Casey County jalapenos. Broken down by the long cook, the tender meat simply melted into the chili. Tempered by the tomatoes, peppers, onions, and butternut squash, the bourbon added subtle caramel notes that played nice with the soft smoky sweetness of the sorghum and the tingly creeping heat of the dried chiles. While the scallions and parsley brought fresh onion grassiness to the party, the sliced jalapenos provided biting fiery crunch. Bluegrass Bourbon Chili. Game day. Sunday. Fun Day. Any Day. Kick back and give it a shot.

This year’s event will include music from the University of Kentucky Opera Theater, powerful client stories, and our featured speaker, television journalist Laurie Dhue, former CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News anchor and national recovery advocate. On the outside, Laurie Dhue had it all. She, like so many people affected by addiction, has had a successful career and a seemingly charmed life. As one of the youngest anchors in CNN history, and the only person to ever hold anchor positions at MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News, she appeared to be the consummate professional. But behind the scenes, she struggled with a 15-year addiction to alcohol, one that would often leave her in fetal position in her office begging for the strength to get through another day. Her remarkable story embodies the theme of this year’s event, “From the Outside.” All proceeds from the evening go to the Hope Center, battling homelessness, addiction and mental illness. All ages.
