River Region Arts & Humanities Council holds Denim & Diamonds fundraiser May 3
So, shine up your belt buckles, bolas and boots. Dust off your finest cowboy hats and blue-jean jackets and get ready to party for a cause.
Thanks to the supportive residents of the area, the River Region Arts & Humanities Council has raised over $250,000 since 2001 to support arts and humanities enrichment in the area.
Under the direction of event chair, Sandra Chaisson, a fun-filled evening is planned. The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. with appetizers, a signature drink the Bourbon Spur and music by Gal Holiday, a western swing rockabilly headliner. A chuck wagon style dinner will be served at 7:45 p.m. followed by a live auction, raffles, door prizes and more music.
You won't want to miss the opportunity to raise your "fan" during the auction featuring custom-made chandeliers, cowboy hats decorated by local "quick draw"artists (hats will be judged by Yvonne LaFleur), a condo stay in Aspen, Colorado including airfare for two and transportation from the airport to the condo, a portrait sitting worth over $2,400, a trip to the Kentucky Derby, a hat donated by Yvonne LaFleur suitable for wearing at the Derby, themed baskets and other exciting items. There will also be a "wagon train" of prizes and a raffle for a Coach purse valued at almost $500.
The price for an evening of western fun is $50.00 per person. For more information, contact Anita Hymel at 985-703-0831.
