2013 Central Kentucky Gold Key Club Breakfast

We held our Central Kentucky Gold Key Club breakfast yesterday at Donamire Farm in Lexington. This is an annual event for local Realtors who have sold a Ball home.

We had over 200 people join us for the breakfast, which was catered by Dupree Catering and Events. Guests were able to spin a prize wheel for smaller door prizes or be entered in drawings for larger gifts, including gift cards, an iPad mini, UK Football tickets, and a TV. Everyone who had sold a Ball home in the last 12 months were able to get their name in a cash prize drawing.

Thank you to everyone who joined us. We always have such a great time planning this event and we're so thankful for your continued support of Ball Homes. We're looking forward to next year's event!
