That’s right “pardners”, August 17 marks the date for this well-anticipated, annual event held to raise funds for Grand County Rural Health Network. And you’re in luck as there are still tickets available! It’ll be a good olde-fashioned barn dance and silent auction at the new B Lazy 2 Ranch & Event Center location in Fraser. Dining, bidding, dancing, picture taking, and bull riding – you’re sure to have a whooping and hollering good time!
At 6 pm the evening kicks off with a Cocktail Hour (light appetizers will be served and each guest receives 2 drink tickets for select wine and beer) and the Silent Auction will open for bidding. Then at 7 pm, there will be the Traditional BBQ Buffet and Presentation of the 2017 Award for Excellence in Healthcare Service to a well-deserved professional, Wade Walker, who is a City Market pharmacist. Following the dinner will be the Live Auction & “Raise the Paddle for Rural Health” Fundraiser. From 8-10 pm attendees will have a chance to get their photos taken Old-West style and/or take a ride on the Mechanical Bull (if you dare!) Coffee will be provided by Lion Head Coffee and an assortment of desserts has graciously been donated by Mid Town Cafe.
There will be a Cash Bar available throughout the evening with 25% of profit donated back to Grand County Rural Health Network by Peak Beverage Catering.
What does it cost for admission to Boots, Bulls & BBQ? It’s $75 per person, which we’d be willing to bet is less than those boots in your closet cost you!
What to wear y’all are asking? Well, here’s your chance to show off your best western wear or simply pull out a pair of jeans and a plaid shirt from your closet. Bonus if you have a pair of cowboy boots you can dust off for the occasion.
We hope you’ll be able to attend the Boots, Bulls & BBQ event, not only because it is SUCH a fun event but to also help support local individuals and families in need of finding healthcare options right here in Grand County.
