Back by popular demand, The Shepherd’s Center of Kernersville is presenting the Blue Jean Gala, our 27th Annual Auction Gala on April 3 at Summerfield Farms. The evening festivities will kick off at 6:30 p.m. with a silent auction showcasing items in the following categories: beauty/spa, arts and entertainment, children’s corner, sports, health and fitness, pets, home and garden, automotive, relaxing getaways, and food and beverages.
The evening also includes a tasty meal catered by Above and Beyond Catering with complimentary beer and wine provided by R.H. Barringer Distributing, Inc. and American Premium Beverage Inc. Other highlights include the popular “Fitzpedia” – a wine, beer and spirit pull, restaurant wild card, and a live auction with some very appealing items and experiences.
