Lowes Food and the Lexington County Blowfish are attempting to set the record for the largest cake walk prior to the team’s July 15 game against the Forest City (N.C.) Owls.

Participants pay $5 to earn five chances to win a cake from the grocery store plus a one-year subscription to its online ordering service. Proceeds will benefit the Lexington 1 School District Educational Foundation.

“We are grateful to have Lowes Foods and the Lexington County Blowfish partner in this exciting and fun way to support our students and schools in Lexington 1,” said Julie Anderson Washburn, the foundation’s executive director.

Typically held at Fall Festivals and Spring Flings, cake walks help raise money for schools and churches.

Before the Blowfish game, fans will take the field and stand on a series of numbers. Once the music starts to play, they will walk until the music stops, a number is drawn and the participant standing on that number wins.

Those interested in participated can sign up at the Lowes Foods Midlands Facebook page. Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. and participants will take the field at 6 p.m. The walk begins at 6:20 p.m. with the first pitch at 7:05 p.m.

“We thought this was a great way for us to help the schools and put Lexington on the map for setting a world record,” said Scott McCaffrey, manager of the new Lowes store that will be opening soon on Sunset Boulevard.

The Blowfish play at Lexington County Baseball Stadium, 474 Ballpark Road, in Lexington.
