Major Gift To Fund Medical Research

$500,000, that's the gift from the Barnstable Brown family to help diabetes research at the University of Kentucky.

A match from Kentucky's Research Challenge trust fund will boost the total to one million dollars.

The Barnstable Brown family raises money every year through their Derby Eve Gala in Louisville. The money will go to fund tools for the pediatric diabetes laboratories.

Patricia Barnstable Brown lost her husband to diabetes in 2003.

The Barnstable Brown Gala has raised more than $2.8 million for diabetes research at UK, including matched state funds.
