Special to The PREVIEW
Are you looking for something fun to do this Friday night? Has it been a while since you have had the opportunity to swing your honey around the dance floor? Come with all your friends to the Hoedown to help raise money for Our Savior Lutheran School.
We will be serving mouthwatering brisket, dance with Andy Janowsky and Jeff Johnson from The High Rollers, and bid on our amazing items in our silent auction. A cash bar with beer and wine will be available for those who would like to purchase and we will have nonalcoholic beverages for those who don’t.
The High Rollers have been extremely popular in this area and, while they are not together anymore, Janowsky and Johnson have agreed to come light up the stage with some lively tunes. The High Rollers were originally conceived by bassist and songwriter Janowsky (whose mother taught at Our Savior Lutheran School for many years) and Johnson, who plays fiddle, banjo and guitar.
Additionally, we have a generous donor who has agreed to match all cash donations made at the event up to $20,000. We will have envelopes at the event specifically designated for this, or if you would like to contribute, please call Pennie DeClark at 903-3242.
All proceeds from this event go towards the operation of Our Savior Lutheran School, a nonprofit organization that does not receive any federal funding. We currently offer two preschool classes, kindergarten through seventh grade and are excited to announce the addition of eighth grade next year. This event is our main fundraiser that helps us keep tuition costs down and to continue to provide an excellent classical curriculum in a loving Christ-centered environment to the children of Pagosa Springs.
The Colorado Guys and Gals Country hoedown will be held at 56 Meadows Drive in the Lutheran School gymnasium from 6 to 9 p.m. (cocktails start at 5:30 p.m.) tomorrow, March 15. Dress is country fancy and all are guaranteed to have a stompin’ good time. Tickets are $40 per person now and are selling fast; any remaining tickets will be sold at the door, but don’t wait — get them now. Tickets can be purchased at the Lutheran Church office (731-4668/731-3512) or by contacting Pennie DeClark (903-3242). We can’t wait to see you there.
