‘Boots and Bling’ to benefit REACH

The Boots and Bling benefit will be held at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, at Bloemsma Farm Barn in Franklin.

“Boots and Bling,” a new fundraiser for Zonta Club, will benefit REACH of Macon County, which provides free and confidential services and a shelter to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Macon and Jackson counties. The second nonprofit beneficiary, New Life Women’s Center in Hayesville, is a 90-day emergency shelter for women and women with children, which serves Clay County and surrounding counties in Western North Carolina and North Georgia.

The event will feature music, dancing, specialty foods provided by a number of area restaurants from Franklin, Highlands, Dillard, and Hayesville, and a silent auction. The silent auction will include various forms of art, along with jewelry, food baskets, numerous gift certificates, and more. 

Individual tickets for Boots and Bling are available at the Franklin Chamber of Commerce. Table sponsorships are available.
