Grab Your Hat and Round-Up Your Posse, We’re Giving Domestic Violence the Boot!

 Local domestic violence center, FavorHouse of Northwest Florida is partnering with Cat Country 98.7 and area restaurants to throw a country-western themed party to raise critical funds to help domestic violence victims in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. Happening Friday, June 21st from 6-10pm at the Escambia County Equestrian Center located at 7750 Mobile Hwy. in Pensacola, FL, the FavorHouse Round-Up is gearing up to be a toe-tappin’, knee-slappin’ good time in support of a good cause.

The Round-Up features live music from Blackwater Country, walk-about food tasting, dancing, mechanical bull and rodeo roper, bourbon and wine pulls, live auction of experience packages, and more. “We are throwing a party for 400 supporters who want to give back and have a great time with friends while doing it! Financial support raised from fundraising events like the Round-Up is vital to the programs and services that we provide non-stop. We need to raise at least $400,000 every year from our community to stay effective.” stated Tracie Hodson, FavorHouse Executive Director.

Hodson also bestowed some tips for people interested in going to the Round-Up, “If you are coming with a group of friends, consider reserving a table instead of buying tickets separately that way you can be guaranteed seats at the same table. You can get the tickets at the early bird price of $50 until the end of May, tickets prices are $60 each starting June 1st. The ground is hard-packed dirt, so we recommend saving fancy shoes for a different event. Come hungry, it’s all you care to eat. Lastly, bring your competitive spirit – you could find it rewarding.”
