LOUISVILLLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The WHAS Crusade for Children turns 60 in 2013, and the goal is $6 million.

Local businesses are doing what they can to help the Crusade reach that goal. At the Kroger on Hubbards Lane in Saint Matthews, each of the store's 16 departments has decorated a horse to represent that department.

Each one has its own name the meat department's is called Sir Loin, the produce department's is named Peaches and the floral department's is named Flower Power.

"It was fun. Each department got a horse and decorated it with their own discretion. Everybody's had a lot of fun with it," Jeanie Lilly, with Kroger, said.

Customers can vote on which horse is their favorite by putting their change in a jar. The department whose horse collects the most money gets a trophy and bragging rights.

The horses have been up since Monday, April 22, and the store has already raised more than $230. You can vote on your favorite through May 2 and then the horses will be auctioned off in a silent auction.

All the money raised will be donated to the Crusade.
