Tony Delk is Giving Back to Kentucky’s Children.

Tony Delk is a Kentucky hero, on and off the basketball court. The former Kentucky Wildcat is donating 15% of all Lorenz00’s Reserve wine sales through December 2020 to Kentucky Children’s Hospital. Delk, a father of two girls, has a significant passion for children’s hospitals. Both daughters have sickle cell disease and have spent much time in children’s hospitals across the country.

“Once Taylor was diagnosed, we started going to the hospital when she would have these pain crises. Seeing her fight through it, I was like, ‘wow, this girl right here is a real trooper,’” Tony said.

Delk’s donation will go to the region’s only hospital with a focus on unique needs for children. His ties with Lexington have remained strong over the last 20+ years, and this proves they’re as strong as ever.

He’s the perfect example of how Kentucky basketball is more than just a sport. It’s family.
