LexDoingGood, a new non-profit fair sponsored by the Community Endowment of Lexington (CEL), provided an opportunity this fall to visit the Community Center and meet the people that provide programming, enhance diversity and serve our community needs. Event Co-Chair Nancy White said, “CEL wants to create an event where local non-profits share their story. We want to shine a light on all that they do for our community.” Thirty-seven non-profits acquainted attendees with their programs and potential volunteer opportunities. Music was provided by our high school a cappella groups and the William Diamond Junior Fife & Drum Corps; free coffee was donated by T21 Coffee. Based on the enthusiastic community response, CEL hopes to make this a regular event in the future.
