One of Rutherford County’s favorite summer events is ready to ride; “Saddle Up for Project Help” is slated for Thursday, July 25th at 6:30 p.m., at MTSU’s Foundation Reception House, located at 324 West Thompson Lane in Murfreesboro. Proceeds from the event will benefit Project Help, a center-based early intervention program located on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University. For only $50 per ticket, guests can show off their favorite jeans, boots and cowboy hats while they enjoy a Western-themed evening filled with barbecue and live music.
In addition, “Saddle Up for Project Help” will feature Nashville artist Arthur Kirkby, who will fascinate by creating a painting during the event; guests will have the opportunity to purchase the painting in the silent auction. The silent auction will also offer opportunities to grab deals on spa packages, tickets to sporting events, family fun and date night outings, and local entertainment. The popular miniature sculptures of Raymond “Chi” Palma will be featured as well.
Project Help offers services free of charge to families who have very young children with developmental delays or disabilities. Director Susan Waldrop said, “We are very excited about our seventh Saddle Up! We’re, of course, working to make this year’s ‘Saddle Up for Project Help’ fundraiser the most fun event of the summer. It has been wonderful to see so many people from Rutherford County come out and support the work and mission of Project Help. I hope everyone will join us at the Foundation Reception House on July 25th.”
Project Help Advisory Board Co-Chair Sandy Mitchell said, “Saddle Up gets bigger and better each year. It’s a casual, fun summer party, which in itself is a perfect reason to come out to the event. However, Project Help means so much to families whose children have benefited from attending. The proceeds from Saddle Up will enable Project Help to continue to meet the needs of Rutherford County families.”
