It takes a village to make Barndance come to life each year, and only happens from the generousity sponsors and underwriters.
Volunteers are needed to help with the success of Barndance 2019. Whether you can give one hour or four, we’ll put you to work.
The music lineup on July 16th is unbelievable. Barndance kicks off with Mellencougar, a John Mellencamp tribute band beginning at 5:00 pm. Next we start rocking it with the Eddie Butts Band right after the conclusion of the live auction. And finally we jam with Rok Brigade…a Def Leppard’s Tribute Band.
The Barndance Live Auction, Bucket Raffle and 50/50 are much loved activities. The energy that each creates is amazing. It helps drives home the reason we do Barndance…to raise money to fight cancer. Cancer has touched each of us.
Help us build all the baskets and packages ranging from restaurant gift certificates to amazing vacations. Through your donation, you’ll be making a tax-deductible contribution that will support Gavers Community Cancer Foundation mission to raise awareness, provide education, fund screenings and research. You will also benefit from the exposure to Barndance attendees as all donors are listed in the program.
