2016 Shamrock Shuffle

2016 Shamrock Shuffle

We are just a little bit late in posting this.  We hope you guys will forgive us… Team Lexington Oriental Rugs came out to the 2016 Shamrock Shuffle 3K in support of Lexington Habitat for Humanity. People and events like this are what make this city great! Nice work Team Lexington Oriental Rugs, your shenanigans made us proud!

The Shamrock Shuffle 3k is an annual road race (for runners, duh) in downtown Lexington, Kentucky.  The proceeds from this wonderfully fun event support Lexington Habitat.  Lexington Oriental Rugs was happy to be chosen as the Presenting Sponsor for this local favorite among hardcore runners and first timers alike. Team LOR sponsors teams for many local charity events, but this team was one our largest to date with almost 40 registered participants!

This 1.8 trek through the heart of the Bluegrass is locally organized, and 100% of the proceeds go to benefit Lexington Habitat for Humanity.  Since 1986, Lexington Habitat has helped 400 families achieve home ownership through building simple, decent, affordable housing alongside community volunteers. Find out how you can donate, volunteer or get involved at lexhabitat.org.

2016 Bowling for Kids SakeWe also had a chance to hit the lanes for the 2016 Bowling for Kid’s Sake event to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass. Bowl for Kids’ Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass’ largest and most successful fund raising event each year. For over 30 years, this event has helped to provide the resources needed to put mentors in the lives of children that need and want a Big Brother or Big Sister. Companies and other groups work together to create bowing teams of up to five participants. These teams raise donations by using pledge sheets.  Luckily for us, our pledges were not based on our scores.

Team Lexington Oriental Rugs is a group of Employees, Clients, Friends, and Family that participate in community activities to improve our Lexington Home!  Hugh James, owner of Lexington Furniture, was a Big Brother in the past, and has continued his support of the group by sponsoring a Bowl for Kids’ Sake team for many years.  If you would like to learn more about our team, please visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/teamlor .
