It will be a night of shining stars celebrating, recognizing and honoring those who have supported or been served by Hospice of the Bluegrass.
Kentucky’s Miss America, Heather French Henry, will serve as emcee and headliner for the second annual Bash in the Bluegrass fundraiser at the Frankfort Convention Center Saturday.
The Bash in the Bluegrass begins at 7:30 p.m. and will feature the R&B, soul and funk sounds of the Soul Pocket Band.
Individual tickets are $75 and a table of eight can be reserved for $600.
Shining silver stars can be purchased for $20 either ahead of time or at the event.
And what‘s more star-studded than the unique crown fashioned in gold and red jewels earned by French-Henry in honor of her title as Miss America 2000.
French-Henry confirmed to The State Journal she will be bringing the unique crown.
“I am happy to support the work of Hospice of the Bluegrass. I have done several events for hospice organizations,” French-Henry said.
“Many veterans have unique needs and hospice has recognized those and works to support those veterans and their families in the end stages of their lives,” French-Henry said.
The food includes a carving station, pasta, wine and cheese and desserts provided by Seasons Catering.
In addition there will be silent and live auctions featuring an African Safari and a weekend with a cabin at Dale Hollow Lake.
The jewelry raffle, sponsored by Selbert’s Jewelry, will have a twist this year. The 100 tickets to be sold at $50 each offer a key to a special safe to be opened at a designated time during the event.
“Selbert’s has been a long-time supporter of our events and this year instead of providing a diamond, the Weitzels are providing a beautiful piece of jewelry,” Chris Harp said.
Harp is the regional development officer for Hospice of the Bluegrass, which covers Anderson, Franklin, Owen and Woodford counties.
