The Fayette County Memorial Hospital (FCMH) Foundation is proud to announce
the 2018 Super Summer Raffle. Powered by Baxla Tractor Sales and Beford
Ford Lincoln, tickets are now available for the fundraiser in which one
lucky person will win a 48” zero-turn, eXmark brand mower.
Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased at Baxla Tractor Sales –
2312 US Highway 22 NW , Beford Ford Lincoln- 1700 Columbus Avenue, Fayette
County Memorial Hospital – 1430 Columbus Avenue, or from any FCMH
Foundation board member. The winner of the raffle will be drawn at 7:30pm
on Saturday, June 23, at the Toast to Summer & Hot Air Balloon Glow
held at the Fayette County Airport. Ticket holders do not have to be present to win.
“We are very appreciative of the partnership with Beford Ford Lincoln
and Baxla Tractor Sales,” said foundation director Whitney Gentry,
“Mark and Connie Beford opened their dealership not quite a year
ago but it’s clear from their involvement in the community that
they live up to their mantra that Beford is “Where Connie Cares”.
Baxla Tractor Sales has been in the region for quite some time and, true
to their motto “our business is helping you grow”, they will
be helping us grow the Foundation’s capacity to meet the hospital’s
needs.” Gentry also extended thanks to the Fayette County Chamber
of Commerce, Fayette County Pilot’s and Friends and Fayette County
Travel & Tourism Bureau for graciously including the foundation raffle
in the line-up at the Toast to Summer & Hot Air Balloon Glow. Tickets
for the raffle will be available at the event all day, until the 7:30pm
drawing. “So far this has been real community effort – all
that’s left now is for the public to get behind the fundraiser and
purchase a ticket,” said Gentry.
