The Barn at Snider Farm was rocking to the sound of The Kimberlie Helton Band, intermingled with rounds of bingo, good food from Coyote Blues, wine from Party Mart and a silent auction. The Jackson Service League presented their 4th Annual Boots, Bands and Bingo event at the Barn at Snider Farm on April 8th to a capacity crowd.
The Jackson Service League was founded in 1952 by a group of 17 women dedicated to serving their community. The League’s three big fundraisers are the Thrift Sale in the fall; Boots, Bands and Bingo; and a Golf Tournament in the spring. This year’s Boots, Bands and Bingo was highly successful, raising more money than last year, which will benefit RIFA, The Dream Center, WRAP, FCA, ARM, CASA, the Boys & Girls Club and more.
Chairperson of Boots, Bands and Bingo, Beth Spencer commented “It’s an honor to be part of the JSL. All the women are busy mothers, doctors, attorneys, and local business owners, and have very limited time. We come together to help people through scholarships or grants, applications for which are taken year round.” For more information go to www.jacksonserviceleague.com or on Facebook.
