OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) — Former President Bill Clinton will be in Owensboro next month at a reception and dinner to benefit the Wendell H. Ford Government Education Center.
Tickets to the March 6 event at the RiverPark Center are $1,000 per person.
Ford, a former Kentucky governor and U.S. senator, said in a statement on the center's website that he hopes to help fund an endowment to benefit the center.
The website said the center is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that sponsors educational programs to help encourage participation in politics, government and public service by young people.
Ford served in the state Senate, as lieutenant governor and governor and four terms in the U.S. Senate before retiring in 1999.
