Bluegrass & BBQ

We have added a new and exciting event to our Spring 2020 calendar with a performance 

by “Midnight Train” - one of the best bands around - on Sunday afternoon, March 29.


You will be treated to an afternoon of enjoyable music and BBQ in a casual atmosphere on the grounds of the Plantation Golf & Country Club. 


Included at the event will be:

  • Bourbon Tasting for up to 3 different bourbons for $10; and
  • Big Kahuna tickets for $100 each.  This is a chance for a really big cash prize of $1,000 or more.  


“Bluegrass & BBQ” is an event you won’t want to miss!!


The money raised will be used to help fund Grants that are awarded to non-profit  agencies that improve the quality of life of South Sarasota County residents by supporting organizations in social services, healthcare, education, environmental, and cultural activities.
