Kentucky Derby Museum to donate proceeds to virus relief

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Derby Museum has announced it will donate more than $10,000 of its proceeds from online merchandise sales to coronavirus relief efforts in the state. The museum said Tuesday the donations will go towards Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear’s Team Kentucky Fund and the One Louisville COVID-19 Response Fund. The museum pledged last month to donate 20% of online sales from collectible merchandise with the original race date of May 2 to funds that help people who have been financially impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. The 146th Kentucky Derby had been postponed from May 2 to Labor Day weekend.
