The Bluegrass Orthopaedics Foundation, a non-profit organization, is proud to sponsor the fourth annual BGO Night of Champions. This event will be held on Thursday April 30th, 2020 at the Marriott – Griffin Gate beginning at 6:00PM. The evening is a celebratory event for those individuals not always recognized with awards or accolades. The BGO Champion Award will be given to two very deserving individuals, one male and one female, from the central Kentucky area.

What is the BGO Champion Award?

This award is unique as it honors student-athletes at the high school level who have distinguished themselves by overcoming adversity or injury, and returned and excelled beyond expectations in their respective sport(s). The award is accompanied with a $2,500 scholarship per individual.

What are the BGO Achievement Awards?

These awards are given to central Kentucky high school student-athletes who have distinguished themselves in the classroom, in their community, on the playing field/court, and have been high achievers in every aspect of their life. Each high school in the central Kentucky area will have an opportunity to nominate individuals for this award. The award is accompanied with a $500 scholarship per individual.
