Brush Bottle and Barrel of the Bluegrass – Legal Aid Society Fundraiser

LEGAL AID SOCIETY ANNOUNCES DATE FOR ELEVENTH ANNUAL BRUSH, BOTTLE, AND BARREL FUNDRAISING EVENT

 

LOUISVILLE—The Legal Aid Society announces the date of our signature fundraising event, the Brush, Bottle, and Barrel of the Bluegrass.  The event will be held Friday, April 25, 2014, from 5:30 to 8:30 PM at the Mary Rodes Lannert Athletic Center at Louisville Collegiate School.  Collegiate is located at 2427 Glenmary Avenue.

This is the eleventh year for the Brush, Bottle and Barrel event.  In 2013, more than 550 people attended and raised more than $40,000 for Legal Aid.

The Brush, Bottle and Barrel of the Bluegrass is a preview party for the Cherokee Triangle Art Fair.  Ten select artists who participate in the Cherokee Triangle Art Fair will be on hand to display and sell their art in advance of the fair.  The event also features tastings of Kentucky wines, bourbons and beers, great food, and a silent auction.

Tickets are $75 and may be purchased in advance or at the door.  To purchase tickets in advance, please visit www.laslou.org or call (502) 584-1254.  Free valet parking is available.  The event is wheelchair accessible.

All proceeds from the Brush, Bottle, and Barrel benefit the Legal Aid Society.  The mission of the Legal Aid Society is to pursue justice for people in poverty.

Legal Aid is a non-profit organization that provides civil legal assistance to families and individuals in poverty in 15 counties in Kentucky.  It is the only organization in Louisville and the surrounding counties that provides legal services free of charge.  Clients turn to Legal Aid for civil legal problems that threaten their physical and economic well-being.  Those assisted include the elderly, children, victims of domestic violence, and other vulnerable groups.

Last year, the Legal Aid Society helped nearly 4,000 people who had nowhere else to turn.
