MYC Barn Dance Raises Record Amounts for Youth of the Plateau
A capacity crowd filled the Sawyer Family Farmstead for the 3rd Annual Barn Dance and Bar-B-Que on the evening of August 2, 2019 to raise money for local students while enjoying bluegrass music, country dancing, barbeque dinner and the company of good friends. The evening’s ticket sales, auction, sponsorships and donations netted over $55,000, which is a record amount for this event. Again this year the primary beneficiary of the evening’s fundraising was Blue Ridge School Education Foundation. In addition to benefitting the Foundation and Blue Ridge Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM), the money raised at the Barn Dance will be awarded to other schools and youth programs who apply for grants via the application on the MYC website.
