Famed Country Singer Mark Wills helps Maker’s Mark Secretariat Center kick off Summer 2015 at Annual Fundraiser
What do you get when you add great music, great food and a great cause together in June? A Win/win/win kickoff to summer! On June 19, country music singer Mark Wills will perform to help raise monies for former racehorses stabled the Kentucky Horse Park's non-profit Maker's Mark Secretariat Center to transition to new careers and homes. Red State Barbecue, a local culinary hotspot will dish out mouthwatering pulled pork, brisket and chicken along with other down-home delights such as green beans, corn pudding, beer cheese grits and more. Wash the meal down with fine wines, Kentucky ales, and a Maker's Mark special drink. Finish up with homemade Bourbon Ball ice cream from Mad Scoops among other great flavors or cotton candy and kettle corn.
Horses available for adoption will demonstrate their newly learned skills in the arena. There will be games to be played and a silent and a live auction to support the horses and their needs. The grand highlight of the night, and surely the best summer kickoff around is a performance exclusive to the Sips 'N Saddles audience by country music's famed Mark Wills. Wills will sing his Billboard Number One Chart hits such as "Jacob's Ladder," "I Do (Cherish You," and "Places I've Never Been," along with many other songs during his two thirty minute sets.
