Hundreds of winter coats donated at annual Warm Up Louisville event

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Eighteen local musicians gave up there Sunday night to give back to the community. 

It was the second year for Warm Up Louisville, a night featuring an array of musical performances at the Silver Dollar on Frankfort Avenue.

But to get in, you had to donate a winter clothing item. 

The Louisville Musicians Service Coalition collected items like coats, blankets and socks.

"One of the great things about Louisville is we have a bunch of musicians who are supremely talented and artistic," said Chad Graham with the coalition. "We're using that resource to gather resources for those in need."

Organizers say they collected 350 coats last year. 

They believe they more than doubled that number Sunday.
