The Bluegrass is getting a visit from a former president Friday.
Former President Bill Clinton is attending a benefit in Jessamine County.
It will be for the Lexington Hearing and Speech Center.
The event, which began at 6:30 p.m., is at the RJ Corman Hangar in Nicholasville.
Organizers expect a crowd of around 500 people to be on hand for the event. They say it will serve as a kickoff for a capital campaign to build a new school for the Hearing and Speech Center.
The former president suffers from hearing loss.
The Lexington Hearing and Speech Center needs to raise at least $2 million for a new building.
