Put on your best cowboy boots this weekend. The Arendell Parrott Academy is hosting its annual Patriot Ball Auction, sponsored in part by Ward and Smith. This Boots and Bling fundraiser is held every year, and includes live and silent auctions. Attendees will have a chance to bid on a wide selection of merchandise, services, and experiences. Items range from projects crafted by students to exotic trips to faraway places. There's even a raffle drawing to win free tuition for a year.
The event kicks off at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 21 at the Woodmen Community Center in Kinston, North Carolina. All proceeds raised go directly to the Arendell Parrott Academy. Tickets are still available.
