LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Kentucky First Lady Jane Beshear stopped by the studio Thursday to talk about the Kentucky Oaks Pink Out!

One principle at the heart of the Kentucky Oaks event is support for charities and the life-long commitment many women have made to raise money and awareness for causes that are important to them and their families.

Over the last three years, Churchill Downs has donated over $427,000 to charitable organizations through its Oaks day initiatives. This year, Churchill Downs will again contribute $1 for every Oaks attendee and $1 for every Oaks Lily beverage sold to charity. 

In 2011 alone, Churchill Downs contributed more than $100,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure and $30,000 to Horses and Hope.

Churhill Downs encourages Oaks fans everywhere to show their support by attending the Oaks in person. Help us make a difference!  Come to Oaks 138 on May 4 and join the fight against cancer.
