Key Event Raises $332,000
Key ’16 event chairman, Tom Fagot welcomed 334 guests to the 15th annual Lexington Community Foundation Key event on Saturday, May 7th.
The evening was fashioned around the speakeasy theme which was carried through the décor, the dress of many attendees and even some of the auction items being offered. The festive evening included a dinner auction which culminated a week of silent online auction bidding, raffle tickets sales and a preview night social which was held on Friday, May 6th.
Proceeds from the more than $332,000 raised will be used for Foundation initiatives including Give Big Lexington scheduled for November 10, 2016.
Thank you to all who participated in Key ’16!
The benefits of a successful event like this one are multifaceted.
It takes a desire from all of us who live here to improve the community we live in.
The Lexington Community Foundation Board (LCF) appreciates your support of the Foundation and its activities throughout the years. We recognize that our success in being able to raise money through our annual events – The Key (dinner and auction) and Give Big Lexington (day of giving) – is directly related to the support you provide us.
Over $13.9 million has been distributed back into Lexington and the Johnson Lake area by the Foundation since 1996. Dozens of projects, both large and small, and thousands of people have benefitted. The Foundation firmly believes that communities should feel great about being generous together. Lexington accomplishes that!
In 2013, the LCF Board of Directors began building the capacity of our events by accepting LCF Event Sponsorships. The Foundation feels that by obtaining annual event sponsors, we have helped maximize the impact your donor dollars have in this community.
We are inviting you to partner with the Lexington Community Foundation in support of our 2016 community events. By becoming an LCF Events Sponsor, you will be given recognition for the full year through the LCF Forum (newsletter), the LCF website and media sources.
