Blue Grass Farms Charities Announces Annual Fundraiser, Gala

Blue Grass Farms Charities is preparing for its annual fundraiser later this month. Relics and Rarities from the Bluegrass Region Virtual Auction will go live on Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. and end Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. This four-day timeframe gives everyone a chance to review and bid on unique, rare, and fun items from area farms and businesses.

“We have a great lineup of items,” stated Julie Kwasniewski, Director. “Many are from the farms such as Authentic‘s Halter and Tapit’s shoes. Included in the list of items are signed Maker’s Mark and hard-to-find bourbons, area trips and experiences, and beautiful equine art.”

The auction platform is powered by GiveSmart. Text BGFC at 76278 to connect and be a part of the auction.

Blue Grass Farms Charities will host its annual gala event on Oct. 29 at Lexington’s Limestone Hall located in the old Courthouse square, 3rd Floor, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. The courthouse will be in its spookiest décor provided by Great Expectations. Soulful sounds to hear and dance to by the band, HoneyChild. Concoctions and delicacies provided by Selma’s Catering poured by mad scientists and served by zombies, ghosts, and ghouls. Valet parking available on the Short Street entrance.

“Since 2019 we have been planning this gala,” states Julie Kwasniewski. “Why not come knowing that we have been preparing for a fun, Covid19-safe party for 1 ½ years. Yes, wear a mask. It’s a Halloween party!”
