A western-themed evening is set to benefit Noblesville-area kids.
Yee-haw for Youth, a fundraiser that will return for its second year from 6 to 11 p.m. Oct. 5, will raise money for the Noblesville Youth Assistance Program, an organization that provides resources for at-risk children ages 3 to 17. The event will be held in the newly remodeled Prairie House at Conner Prairie, 13400 Allisonville Rd.
Attendees are encouraged to dress in jeans and other casual Western attire while enjoying dinner and drinks with an open bar and live music by local musician Craig Thurston.
“Yee-haw for Youth allows adults to give back to the community in a meaningful way that has an immediate, positive impact on the lives of youth, all while having a rootin’, tootin’ good time,” said Matt Nelis, president of the NYAP board of directors.
Activities will include the Conner Prairie corn maze, a photo booth, outdoor games and a bonfire. Guests can raise additional funds through a wine pull, western-themed raffle and the chance to throw your “pardner” in jail for a price to “bail them out.”
Tickets are $75 per person. All proceeds will benefit NYAP. During the 2018-19 school year, NYAP staff managed 226 new case referrals and provided at-risk kids with nearly 11,000 summer lunches, 90 one-on-one tutoring and mentoring connections, 75 camp or other recreational programs and holiday gifts for 63 children.
