Friends of the Tulare County Fair will host a fundraiser featuring the James Garner Tribute to Johnny Cash on Friday, March 6 at the Tulare County Fairgrounds.
The evening begins with a social hour at 6 pm, followed by dinner at 7 and a live auction with auctioneer David Macedo.
The revived nonprofit foundation held a fundraiser last year that made possible the paving of the fairgrounds, much-needed improvements to the show barn and landscaping, and the popular Buttercup the Cow display.
Proceeds from the 2015 fundraiser will help support 4H and FFA youth, and make possible additional grounds improvements for the Tulare County Fair, to be held between September 16 and 20. Tickets are $100 each or $1,000 for a reserved table.
Last year’s fundraiser was hugely successful, according to Tulare County Fair CEO Pamela Fyock, with more than 450 tickets sold.
“We met our goal of having more school children at the fair last year, and this fundraiser is intended to help us bring in even more,” Fyock said. “Children who are already involved in agriculture through 4H or FFA, but also children who need to learn about the industry that fuels the state’s economy and feeds the world. We are a county rich in agricultural history and we owe it to our youth to educate them.”
