Alison Van Natta has planned an inaugural fundraiser at her Westfield barn to benefit the Westfield Youth Assistance Program.
Boots and Bling will be from 7 to 10:30 p.m. Sept. 22 at the Van Natta barn, 1881 W. 161st St. The casual wear-evening will feature a dinner catered by Keltie Domina, a live auction, a 50/50 raffle with a chance to win $5,000, an open bar and more. Tickets are $150 per person. Only 100 are available.
Van Natta chose WYAP as the beneficiary because she has served on its board since 2014.
“It’s a great local organization that really has such an immediate and direct impact on the youth of Westfield,” she said. “It’s just really important and we feel great about supporting it. Our goal is to let people know what Westfield Youth Assistance does for people in the community.”
Mayor Andy Cook and Judge Steve Nation will attend. Cook and Nation helped form the WYAP in 2009. WYAP serves as an early intervention advocate for kids ages 3 to 17 who may be facing challenging life circumstances.
Live auction items include a dinner for 10 catered by Keltie Domina, an evening with the Blend limo, Colts tickets, Palladium tickets and more. The drawing for the 50/50 raffle will be at 9:30 p.m.
