Tree of Love
For many years, individuals and families have chosen to honor and remember family members, friends and co-workers through the Wake Forest Baptist Health Lexington Medical Center Foundation’s annual Tree of Love project. Each light on the Tree of Love represents a gift that has been given to continue our Medical Center’s tradition of community-based health care and to honor or remember the life of someone dear.
This year the annual Tree of Love Lighting Ceremony will be streamed on Facebook Live on Thursday, December 3, 2020, beginning at 5:30 pm. We hope you will tune in and join us as we kickoff the holiday season at Lexington Medical Center.
We are excited to offer you a new opportunity to support the 2020 Tree of Love. For a gift of $30 or more we will dedicate an ornament in the name of your honoree on our indoor tree located in the lobby of the Outpatient Entrance to LMC.
To designate your gift, please complete and return the Tree of Love form. Contributions to the 2020 Tree of Love project will be accepted through January 31, 2020.
Postponed until 2021
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.”
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.
