Hopkinsville Teddy Bear Toss

The first-ever Hopkinsville Teddy Bear Toss, sponsored by Jennie Stuart Health, will take place Saturday, Jan. 21, during halftime of the Hopkinsville at Christian County High School boys’ basketball game. Tip-off for the game is set for 7:30pm. Halftime should occur about 45 minutes later. Plan to come early to support both teams!
At halftime, patrons will be asked to toss new or gently-used teddy bears (or stuffed animals) onto the CCHS court, where they will be safely collected by volunteers. All of the collected bears will go to the Pennyrile Children’s Advocacy Center and their efforts to assist local youth who have been abused and are seeking assistance and resources.

133rd Annual Dinner

You don’t want to miss this one! The 133rd Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner presented by Planters Bank & Jennie Stuart Health will be held on Tuesday, June 21, 2022 at The Bruce Convention Center! The Chamber’s largest annual fundraising event & business community celebration gathers members of the Christian County Chamber of Commerce for an evening of networking, celebration, and vision for the future. Sponsors enjoy excellent visibility to the largest and most distinguished audience of the year.

Our guest speaker is Jim McKelvey, best known for co-founding Square, the mobile payment system but his entrepreneurial spirit goes beyond inventing new technology. A 1987 graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, McKelvey is also a master glass artist and author, having written the world’s most widely read text on the subject, The Art of Fire. Jim recently ventured from textbooks and authored The Innovation Stack, a narrative that provides a first person look into the world of entrepreneurship. In 1989, McKelvey founded Mira Digital Publishing, an early digital technology startup, where Jack Dorsey interned before launching his own tech career and founding Twitter. McKelvey co-founded Square in 2009 with Dorsey, to enable small businesses to run their storefronts on a mobile device. McKelvey’s other endeavors include LaunchCode, a non-profit creating a pathway for people seeking careers in technology. LaunchCode now has multiple locations and works with over 500 companies to place job-ready individuals. In the Delmar Maker District lies Third Degree Glass Factory, one of the nation’s main centers for glassblowing arts, and more recently opened MADE, a makerspace, both cofounded by Jim McKelvey and Doug Auer. McKelvey’s newest project, Invisibly is on a mission to engineer an online solution that gives advertisers the ability to have richer interactions to forge stronger connections with people in a way that builds trust. In addition to everything above, in 2017 McKelvey was appointed as an Independent Director of the St. Louis Federal Reserve and is currently the Deputy Chair. Jim, and his wife, Anna, have two children.
