LEXINGTON, SC, 2017-Jul-07 — /EPR Retail News/ — In partnership with the Lexington County Blowfish, Lowes Foods will attempt to set a world record for the Largest Cake Walk. The event will happen at the Blowfish game against the Forest City Owls on July 15th. For $5, participants will have five chances to win a Cakery Cake from Lowes Foods and a One Year subscription to Lowes Foods to Go, the online ordering service where guests can select their groceries online and have Lowes Foods hosts do the shopping for them (a $120 value). All money raised will be donated to the Lexington One Educational Foundation, which benefits all schools in the Lexington One school
For the unfamiliar, the Cake Walk is a quintessentially southern activity held at Fall Festivals and Spring Flings to raise money for schools and churches. Like musical chairs, participants stand on a series of numbers fashioned in a circle and walk when music plays. When the music stops, the contestants stop on a number. Unlike musical chairs, everyone has a spot. A number is drawn, and the person standing on that square wins the cake.
“We thought this was a great way for us to help the schools and put Lexington on the map fo setting a world record,” said Scott McCaffrey, the Store Manager of the new Lowes Foods which will be opening on Sunset Boulevard. “The great news is that everyone who plays will receive a piece of cake, and we’re also planning some other surprises during the game to thank the folks who come out to help us.”
“We are grateful to have Lowes Foods and the Lexington County Blowfish partner in this exciting and fun way to support our students and schools in Lexington One,” said Julie Anderson Washburn, executive director for the Lexington One Educational Foundation
“The Blowfish are excited to team up with Lowes Foods for this fun, world record promotion at the ballpark! Blowfish baseball is all about family fun and entertainment,” said Blowfish owner Bill Shanahan. “We’re honored to help raise funds and awareness for such a great organization the Lexington District One Foundation.”
