Centre College President John Roush and his wife, Susie Miller Roush, hosted a barbecue Wednesday for Centre’s Sodexo food services staff, whom they agreed deserved a night off before students begin arriving today.
Lucky Dog donated the catered event for about 150 people as an fundraising auction item at the Court Appointed Special Advocates at Woodlawn’s Derby Eve Gala in May.
The Roushes attended the CASA event, where Susie Roush said she went straight for Lucky Dog’s donation.
“When I saw it as an auction item, I thought ‘oh boy, it is so good,’” she said.
The couple won the catering event and decided to host a meal for the Sodexo staff, giving them an evening of the good food and great service they provide for others every day, John Roush said.
CASA at Woodlawn Director Laura Guerrant attended the event and said she was delighted to experience the Roushes generous idea for the barbecue.
“It’s like the gift that keeps on giving and giving and giving,” she said.
