Saturday area businesses in Hazard will be joining forces to show their appreciation for miners.
From 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. anyone with a miner's card will receive a free lunch from Jabo's State of Mine.
There will also be prizes and giveaways, as well as live music.
"Just want to have day where we can reach out to the miners who have really helped set up this area to make it what it's become and say 'hey thanks, thank you for what you've done.' And we are here for you and thinking about you," said Greg Englehart with Jabo's State of Mine.
He says with the recent layoffs this is one way they feel they can help.
Many other businesses are also contributing to the event.
