Clear your calendars and dust off your boots because time is running out to secure your tickets for Civitan Services’ annual Denim & Diamonds dinner on Oct. 6. The event will be held at the Hill Barn Event Center in Bryant, and the festivities kick off at 6:30 p.m.
Civitan Services is a nonprofit organization serving people with developmental disabilities of all ages. The funds raised each year by Denim & Diamonds benefit the children and adults that Civitan serves through opportunities like education, group homes and supported employment.
Denim & Diamonds makes the perfect girls (or guys) night out. With the food, live music and fun already taken care of, all you have to bring is yourself and your crew (and, might we suggest, your best denim duds).
The dinner menu comes courtesy of the one and only McClard’s and Down Home Catering and is sure to please any Southern palate. Chicken fried steak, country skillet gravy, lemon icebox pie and sweet tea are just a few of the offerings.
Guests are in for another treat with this year’s musical act, as Civitan Services was able to secure Nashville recording artist Hayefield. This duo has a reputation for selling bars out of booze, energetic performances and witty country banter. Needless to say, the barn will stay rocking while these boys are around.
Also on offer (and another reason to get your tickets ASAP) are jewelry pull boxes, available to purchase on the ticket website. The jewelry pulls include all kinds of beautiful selections, with at least one higher-end piece guaranteed to the purchaser of the jackpot box.
Get ready for a bidding war as well, since the silent auction is offering a variety of must-have items, trips and art by clients and Civitan staff.
During the event, Civitan will also announce its annual awards, given out by Civitan Executive Director Leah Henderson.
If you play your cards right, you’ll leave Denim & Diamonds with a full stomach, a new favorite band and an armful of one-of-a-kind items. You’ll also head home with the knowledge that you’re supporting Civitan Services essential work providing care, support, love and encouragement to the people it serves – not bad for a Thursday night.
Sponsors of the event include Bank OZK, Alcoa Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center, Bryant Family Pharmacy and Everett Buick GMC.
One last tip: There is a discounted table package available, so grab five of your best friends and bring them along. Tickets and jewelry boxes are available here.
