Jennifer Lawrence - Hometown Hero

Downtown Louisville will be even more beautiful Saturday morning with the unveiling of the new 30’ x 40’ Jennifer Lawrence “Hometown Hero” banner on the west-facing wall of the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts.  “Jennifer’s Louisville” is the latest banner installation from the Greater Louisville Pride Foundation’s (GLPF) “Louisville’s Hometown Heroes” series.

Lawrence’s banner is particularly notable, however, as it was funded through a community effort spearheaded by “The Lawrence’s Ladies.”  The group of Louisville area school-aged young women created a fundraising site on GoFundMe to raise the money for the Jennifer Lawrence banner because they are proud that she is from Louisville and view her as a true role model.

Saturday’s unveiling will be brief–and without Jennifer herself–but the mark on the Louisville community will be long-lasting.
