LEXINGTON – The Lexington Foundation is preparing for the 18th annual Key Event. It will take place on Saturday at the Holiday Inn Express. Along with the main event there will also be a preview of coming attractions on Friday night and a mobile silent auction all week.
The event is the most important fundraiser for the Lexington Foundation according to foundation member Kurt Rickertson.
“There will be over 400 items up for auction,” Rickertson said, “we’ve got items ranging from gift cards, home decor, outdoor equipment, tools, trees, jewelry, a whole variety of great items.”

Rickertson says the Lexington Foundations helps Lexington in many ways.
“There are big things that are obvious to people,” he said, “like the YMCA and the Majestic Theater. We also do a lot of small day to day things like helping with grants, so there are a whole variety of ways that we impact the community.”
Saturday evening is highlighted by a dinner and again, it all takes place at the Holiday Inn Express in Lexingon.
