The LEXINGTON COMMUNITY FOUNDATION hosts two annual events, the KEY Dinner & Auction and Give BIG Lexington.

The 21st annual Key Dinner & Auction was a smashing success raising over $344,000 for Lexington.

The success of the Key is essential for the Foundation’s everyday business. The money raised provides funding for programs and grants throughout the year. For 21 years, LCF has been able to have both an immediate and visual impact in the area due to successful Key events.
