Sportsmen's Saturday

Saturday, October 31, 2020

Sportsmen’s Saturday is a premier community fundraising event for outdoor enthusiasts hosted by the Wake Forest Baptist Health – Lexington Medical Center Foundation and Honorary Chairman Richard Childress. The 10th anniversary of this event was held on November 2, 2019, at the Lexington Historic Southern Railway Freight Depot. 

“I’m pleased to announce that all proceeds from this event will benefit the new surgical center that is being built,” said Bill James, president of Wake Forest Baptist Health – Lexington Medical Center. “This event is always so much fun, and it’s a great way to help support our friends and neighbors right here in our own community.” 

Large crowd of people in cold weather clothing sit in white chairs in an open-air train depot listening to a speaker/auctioneer 

The event featured more than 20 prizes totaling more than $110,000, with the grand prize being a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 4x4 truck. There were also cash prizes and a live auction where bidders could win Carolina Panthers tickets, a steak dinner cooked at their home by On-Time Catering or a BBQ dinner by Lexington BBQ. 

The $100 raffle ticket cost included lunch, beverages and entertainment.
