The Barn at Snider Farms was full of fun and energy at Boots, Bands & Bingo, an annual fundraiser hosted by the Jackson Service League (JSL). The event, held on March 31, brought out a barn full of party-goers entertained by the always crowd-pleasing Kimberlie Helton Band. Guests enjoyed a fabulous dinner hosted by Coyote Blues.

Excellent items were up for grabs at a silent auction and the wine pull drew lots of curious wine lovers. When it came time to play bingo, the famous Southern author known for her humor, Susannah Lewis aka Whoa Susannah, stepped in as emcee.

Proceeds raised from Boots, Bands & Bingo went to local non-profit organizations. In the past, these have included RIFA, the Dream Center, WRAP, FCA, ARM, CASA and the Boys and Girls Club.
