A record 800 people filled the historic railroad depot in uptown Lexington.
2012 Event Draws Record Participation
A clear autumn sky provided the perfect backdrop at the historic railroad depot in uptown Lexington for the third annual Sportsmen's Saturday event sponsored by the Wake Forest Baptist Health - Lexington Medical Center Foundation. A record 800 people filled the depot and the adjacent grounds Saturday, eagerly anticipating the drawing of tickets that would name the winners of $90,000 in cash and prizes.
WXII's Austin Caviness did a superb job as Master of Ceremonies, and it was evident by the cheers from the crowd that anticipation was at a peak. The event kicked off at noon, November 3rd with an early bird ticket drawing for five cash prizes ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. This was followed by drawings for the remaining spectacular prizes including a Harley Davidson motorcycle, a 2012 Chevy Silverado 4 x 4, a Kubota RTV 400, a pontoon and much more.
The final tally is still being calculated, but it looks as if profits from the event will top $100,000 thanks to the 1,800 that purchased tickets for the event and our generous sponsors. Since Wake Forest Baptist Health matches all contributions of $10,000 or more, the total generated by the event will likely reach $200,000.
