Third Annual Barn Dance
Friday, August 2, 2019

Sawyer Family Farmstead
Glenville NC
6:00 – 10:30 pm

 

Mountain Youth Charities’ Barn Dance and Bar-B-Q raises money for the youth of the Cashiers-Highlands Plateau. The primary beneficiary will again be the Blue Ridge School Education Foundation. Funds will also go the Blue Ridge Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM) and other local youth programs and schools. Look forward to a summer evening with music (Grammy award-winning progressive bluegrass and country music Asheville-based touring band “Songs From The Road” Band) and a delicious barbecue dinner catered by Cashiers Farmers Market’s On-The-Side BBQ.

The beautiful Sawyer Family Farmstead in Glenville is the perfect venue for the MYC event, which begins with a performance by Blue Ridge Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM), a group comprised of local children playing traditional mountain music. There will be square dancing called by North Carolina Representative Joe Sam Queen and line dancing led by professional dance instructor Danie Beck, and more dancing – something for everyone – until 10:30 PM.

In addition to a silent auction there will be a live auction of one exceptional opportunity: A week’s stay at a stunning canal-front vacation home in historic Boca Grande, in SW Florida. This 6,000 square-foot, seven-bedroom home with a salt-water pool, hot tub and direct access to the “sugar sand” beach can easily accommodate a small family reunion or a group of friends.

Tickets are $125 per person. Tables of eight persons may be reserved for $1,000.

A few Patron Tables of 8 are available for $1,500. Patron Tables are recognized as special supporters of the Barn Dance and receive bottles of wine and other gifts.
