"Wow," exclaimed Lesly Sajak, as she surveyed a packed party tent, "there are more people here than we expected."

Some 1,000 supporters sipped cocktails and sampled an extensive buffet, before loudly applauding Sajak and her husband, Pat -- host of the TV game show "Wheel of Fortune" -- as they helped officially open the new Lesly and Pat Sajak Pavilion at the Anne Arundel Medical Center. Among those leading the applause were Sajak kids Patrick, 10, and Maggie, 6.
