UK basketball fans have chance to bid on piece of sports history at St. Mary's Gala

St. Mary's Warrick Foundation's biggest fundraiser of the year will take place Friday evening.

It includes a silent auction, and one of the items up for bid may be of particular interest to University of Kentucky basketball fans.

The event will take place Friday at 6 p.m. at the St. Mary's Manor Auditorium.

It begins with a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by a dinner and then a live auction.

UK fans will have a chance to bid on a piece of the actual Final Four floor where the Wildcats won their eighth NCAA championship.

It's signed by coach John Calipari.

In the past the event has raised money that bought new lab equipment, a special table to help raise and lower patients in rehab, and some much needed remodeling for the hospital.

Tickets are $75 each, they have to purchased ahead of time.
