Barn Blast will be held Friday, Jan. 31, 2020, from 5:30 to 11:30 p.m. in the Ingram Room at South Piedmont Community College’s Lockhart-Taylor Center in Wadesboro.

Tickets for the annual Barn Blast fundraiser are available now at the Anson County Partnership for Children.

“This country-themed night of fun features games, dinner, dancing, and both silent and live auctions,” said Alexandria Harrington of the ACPC. “Barn Blast classics like Head and Tails and new favorites like the Wine Pull are back by popular demand.”

Reserved tables for eight are available for $500 and individual tickets can be purchased for $65.

Poisson, Poisson, & Bower, LLC and Uwharrie Bank will kick-off the night of fun as presenting sponsors.

“Barn Blast is sure to be a fun-filled night for all in attendance with an important purpose in mind,” said Caroline Goins, ACPC Executive Director. “Barn Blast provides resources for our youngest child in our community.”

Goins went on to say, “The success of Barn Blast is a testament to the determination and love of Anson County.”

Sponsorship opportunities are available and tax-deductible. The Partnership welcomes donations of auction items for the live or silent auctions as well. Guests can purchase tickets and sponsorships online by visiting www.ansonchildren.org and following the prompts.

All proceeds benefit the Partnership’s early childhood educational programming. These programs include but are not limited to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library which mails a book each month to over 1,000 children in Anson County.

“Be sure to purchase your Barn Blast tickets before they sell out,” Harrington said.
