Many hospitals depend upon successful fundraising events to continue providing valuable medical service to their communities and patients. Therefore, the Baptist Health Foundation fundraiser event helped support the renovation of the Baptist Health Lexington Breast Center. This 5th Annual fundraiser was hosted by a community healthcare leader that featured a different event each year. Our players, Robert Deason and Mike Sherman, drove out to Lexington, Kentucky to perform a successful show at Keeneland Association Racecourse. Not only did Felix and Fingers have a BLAST at this event, but we helped raise a TON of money for a GREAT cause!

Felix and Fingers were so fortunate to see the passion from generous people at the Baptist Health Foundation fundraiser event. Guests were made to feel special the minute they walked through the door. Envision cocktail hour in luxuriously appointed Show Barn quarters as friendly staff handed out champagne while delicious hor d’oeuvres made their rounds. Robert and Mike also kept guests reaching deep into their pockets to hear song requests such as Lovely Day by Bill Withers. To tell the truth, it was the PERFECT setting!
Amazing Dinner Successful Auction
As cocktail hour wrapped up, the preparations for dinner and auction were in full effect. Felix and Fingers kept the message flowing reminding guests about the great auction items available, while helping with a very successful paddle raise. We played great fundraising tunes during a delicious, in-house catered dinner. As a matter of fact, one of those songs was Money by Pink Floyd. If that’s not a BIG HINT we don’t know what is!
When it was time to kick it into our dueling piano show, our performers built excitement and became adventurous. We really put the FUN into the Baptist Health Foundation fundraiser event. Robert and Mike totally focused on the attendees’ experience. Not only did it make the event enjoyable for our crowd, but it also helped raise MORE MONEY.
When it was time to PARTY, we corralled a group of guests to dance and sing along to The Git Up by Blanco Brown. We quickly developed a nostalgic relationship with our fans playing songs such as September by Earth, Wind and Fire. Felix and Fingers had supporters donate money with each section of the song we played! How about splitting up the room for a sing off? Great idea! We LOVED hearing one side sing GOLD and the other side sing DIGGER by Kanye West. This was especially cool because almost everyone knew the words. Kanye would have LOVED it!
In conclusion, Felix and Fingers would like to thank the Baptist Health Foundation for hiring us to motivate a fantastic crowd and bring in funds for a great cause. Everyone had a BLAST and we LOVED hearing all the HAPPY GUEST compliments! We highly recommend Keeneland for you next special occasion, it’s such a beautiful venue.
