LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Bobby Petrino launched his family foundation on June 19 with a donation to Kosair and the University of Louisville. 

The Petrino family said they are committed to giving back to this city and to the University of Louisville. The Petrino Family Foundation will help them honor those commitments even more.

They presented a gift to Kosair Children's Hospital--that will likely go toward the hospital’s trauma unit.

The scholarship fund will help talented students go to college by covering tuition for those who otherwise couldn't afford it. The Petrinos say the goal is to reach out to those in need.

Members of the University of Louisville marching band are here as well. That's because the foundation made a donation towards the purchase of some new band uniforms.
