The kick-off for this amazing event takes place Thursday, October 21 at 6:30 P.M. You will find us at Kroger Field in the Longship Club Room, (formerly the Woodford Reserve Room). Join us as we huddle with our amazing coaches for our Camp Horsin’ Around Team! You can click here to purchase tickets.
Camp Horsin’ Around, a non-profit organization that provides an outdoor camp adventure for children whose health is compromised or have special needs, will be honoring our 2021 Amazing 8 Honorees at our Camp Out event. This year’s coaches are Dave Baker, Sara Holroyd, Robert Hall Jr., Molly and Barney Hunter, Marian Sims, Larry and Vivian Snipes, and Wilderness Trace Child Development Center’s Libby Suttles. These coaches represent some of the finest and most caring citizens who have dedicated their time, talents, and treasure to make our community a better place.
The Dunbar String Quartet, Orchestra Director Rebecca Goff, will compose pregame entertainment. Throughout the evening other features will be provided by Alex Simpson, Kyle Pezzi, and other heroes of the camp. Tailgating for the evening will start with appetizer options of crispy asiago asparagus, parmesan artichoke heart, frank in a basket, or coconut shrimp. Then tackle the main course with a romaine salad, herb-crusted roasted turkey with sage bourbon gravy, southern cornbread dressing, country-style green beans, and silver dollar rolls. Finish with the sweetest part of the play with black and white petits fours.
The game statistics for the evening will start with our silent auction. Make sure that you are pre-registered for Handbid. Start by going to Handbid.com and search for Camp Horsin’ Around under events. Then follow the instructions provided to register. Online bidding for the silent auction will start Monday, October 18 at 12:00 pm. Some of our highlighted silent auction items are a Secretariat Collage, a Justify halter shadowbox, and themed baskets.
We then start our biggest drive with our live auction quarterbacked by Claire Crouch. Highlighted items for the live auction are guitars autographed by the Rolling Stones and the Eagles, get-away trips such as a trip to the Biltmore Estates, or a Houseboat on Lake Cumberland, and much more (i.e. tubs of signature wine!). During our live auction, we will also be providing our traditional horseshoe special appeal and there will be opportunities for sponsoring a hole for our new Miniature Golf at camp.
We are excited to get our team, Camp Horsin’ Around, back on the field after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have reassembled an awesome playbook in order to take action for a successful 2022 season! Please join our team by supporting their upcoming season while attending our Camp Out event led by our Amazing 8 coaches!
