Starke United is Kickin’ It Country next weekend at the Nancy J. Dembowski Community Center in Knox. The Saturday evening event will help raise funds for Starke United. It will begin at 6 p.m. with country-themed food and music. Western outfits are encouraged for everyone to ‘Kick it Country’. Line dancing and prizes are planned throughout the evening.
Starke United raises money and awards grants to people and organizations throughout the County. Representative Barb McLaughlin says it is a helpful organization in the community.
“Starke United was formed a number of years ago in Starke County. Essentially we are to Starke County what United Way is across the country and it’s a means for our people to direct their charitable giving toward this organization and then the different entities in the county apply to Starke United for a grant,” said McLaughlin.
McLaughlin adds that this event will be a fun evening. It is $20 per person to attend and $150 for an eight person table. A cash bar will be available along with appetizers to start the evening. To reserve your spot and get more information call Barb McLaughlin at 574-896-2000.
