GRAFTON – With its latest fundraiser, Beverly Farm’s Equestrian Center is spurring on the community to support a worthy cause.
On Saturday, May 10, Beverly Farm will host the first “Diamonds and Denim” at The Boat Works at The Loading Dock in Grafton, presented by Burns and Associates Management.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for cocktail hour, with dinner beginning at 6:30 p.m. Events will include a silent auction, raffle, 50/50 drawing and live music from the Glendale Riders.
In addition, the event will boast an evening with guest emcees Billy Greenwood and Remy from 93.7 The Bull.
“Being able to have the emcees from The Bull is really special and something we are excited about,” Stephanie Sinclair, volunteer chairperson for the event, said. “This was always done before as the Chicken and Beer Dance, and I think they wanted to take things up a notch and create something new. Getting the radio station involved and moving the venue to Grafton really fits with our theme.”
One $60 ticket includes dinner, cocktails and entertainment. Sinclair says she expects the 500 tickets available to sell out, and the deadline for ticket purchases is April 27.
The event is for the Beverly Farm Equestrian Center’s therapy program, which benefits both residents and the community. Calling itself a community center, it offers riding programs and therapy services for the entire Greater Alton area ages 5 and older.
