One of the nation’s most recognizable personas is Colonel Sanders, the business mogul and king of the successful fast food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken. When Randall’s uncanny resemblance to The Colonel was recognized, a larger dream began to develop.
Stemming from a joke between him and his co workers, and then a crisp white suit purchased by his wife, Randall’s passion for philanthropy and spreading joy through the art of impersonation was launched. Randall was able to test the waters as Colonel Sanders during Halloween one year, where he posed next to a statue of the original Colonel in a local KFC, which attracted positive attention. From there, he made improvements to his look as the Colonel, and soon visited Downtown Louisville and the Kentucky Derby to show it off.
At events like Relay for Life, which raises money for the American Cancer Society, Randall showed up as the Colonel to spread happiness, while also seeking a way he could to raise money for charitable cancer foundations. From that experience, Bucket for a Cure was born.
