Looking for some down-home country fun with good food, great music and dancing this weekend?

The Cedarburg Education Foundation will host a "Honky Tonk Hoedown" for its 10th annual Fall Bash on Saturday, Nov. 5. The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Cedarburg Cultural Center, W62 N546 Washington Ave., and will feature a 50/50 raffle, a silent auction, a BBQ catered by Out and Out, an open bar, and live music headlined by Milwaukee-based band Saving Savannah.

For the last 10 years, the CEF has worked to provide financial support through private funding for grants that benefit students in the Cedarburg School District. The organization has raised more than $400,000 in grants for classroom enhancements such as SMART boards, iPads, Chromebooks, and musical instruments. Along with its annual Mud Run in June, the Fall Bash has been an integral part of the annual funding for the non-profit CEF.

The silent auction will contribute to future grants and features items such as a six-night family vacation at a condo in Florida, a pheasant hunting trip, a wheelbarrow of beer and Milwaukee Bucks tickets.

Those who cannot attend the event can still purchase tickets for the raffle at the Cultural Center or at Beyer's True Value Hardware. Donations can be made to the CEF at any time by visiting its website and clicking on the "Donate Today" tab.
