Trent Bedding Hosts 7th Annual Mattress Chuck


BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- People were throwing mattresses to benefit the American Red Cross on Saturday.

It was Trent Bedding's 7th Annual Mattress Chuck event.

There was plenty of music and food -- also inflatables and raffles.

The main event was, of course, the mattress toss.

People lined up to give it their best throw, but it was about more than just fun.

"All of this is done for the South Central Kentucky Red Cross. It's generating awareness for them more than anything. Yeah, it's a lot of fun, but it's really trying to generate awareness for what they do in the community. They're not government funded. They're not United Way funded. It's people like you and I that fund the Red Cross and 91 cents of every dollar that they take in goes back into the community," said Trent Ranburger, the owner of Trent Bedding.

The winners of the mattress chuck in both the men's and women's divisions won a free $1,000 mattress set. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
