Wynonna Judd visits Kentucky children's center

ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) -- Country singer Wynonna Judd has visited a children's advocacy center in eastern Kentucky where she donated $10,000.

Judd toured Hope's Place in Ashland on Monday with her children.

The center's director, Pam Huwieler, told The (Ashland) Independent that Judd wanted to see how her donation to the center from an appearance on "Wheel of Fortune" was being used.

Huwieler says Judd's donation was used mainly to fund the services it provides to children who have been the victims of sexual abuse.

Judd described her visit as a "field trip." She said the decision to donate her winnings to an organization in her hometown wasn't one that required a lot of thought.

She says when you're from a small town, "you come back and you give back."
