He also coached at Trinity High School and the University of Louisville. Following 25 years of coaching, Paulie was elected to serve the community for 18 years as Circuit Court Clerk of Jefferson County. The strength and support behind Paulie was his beloved wife Mary. Event features cocktails, dinner, silent auction and dancing to Kudmani.

Who: Miller family members, Keith Inman of Kosair Charities, Judy Lambeth of Maryhurst, and sponsors will be available for media interviews at 6:30 p.m. or after. Photographers and all media welcome.
