Organizers for the Benefit in the Barn announced that the affair is returning for its 9th year Aug. 19 at Lee Farms in Union County. The signature late-summer occasion brings consumers and farmers together for food, entertainment, fun and a purpose. The main objectives of the Benefit in the Barn are to spotlight the hunger issues in our community, raise funding to help address the issue while also providing opportunities for dialogue between consumers and farmers.
The outdoor event will feature dinner catered by City Barbeque. Sponsored by Delaware and Union County Farm Bureau organizations, this year’s entertainment will spotlight Lee Gantt & Briar Williams.
Benefit in the Barn has raised over $440,000 to support hunger relief efforts in Delaware and Union Counties over the last eight years. All net proceeds this year will benefit the Delaware County Hunger Alliance and the Hope Center in Marysville.
Tickets are $50 each, Farm Bureau members can purchase their tickets for $40. Tickets are on sale NOW!
