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 .

The 2015 Shamrock Shuffle 3K (the 9th annual) was held March 14th, at 8am, in downtown Lexington.  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.

shamrock shuffleIf you have read this blog before, you have heard us talking about Team Lexington Oriental Rugs. It’s a group of employees, clients, and friends that get together to participate in community events, charity road
races, and habitat builds. Team LOR is just our way of giving back to the community that has supported us while having a little fun along the way.  Why are we doing this? We like punishment. (Have you seen how many rugs we unload when we get new shipments?) And we love raising money for great charities. Would you like to get involved? Let us know.  We provide team members with a team jersey and sponsor entry into any events. Thanks for helping us to make our community the best!  www.lexingtonorientalrugs.com

shamrock shuffleLexington Oriental Rugs has sponsored a team to participate in the Shamrock Shuffle for the last five years, and this year we took it a step further and committed as the overall sponsor of the event!  Our team of employees, customers, and friends will happily shuffle, or maybe even race, dressed in full St. Patrick’s Day fashion.  Be sure to high-five our group if you see them on the course!
