The Blue Jean Ball, the annual fundraiser for the Auburn University and Auburn Montgomery Schools of Nursing, will be held “Under the Stars” at Coach Pat Dye’s Crooked Oaks Hunting Lodge in Notasulga, Alabama, on Friday, Oct. 2.
The rustic and secluded confines of Dye’s property provide the perfect refuge for a laid-back evening under the stars. Now in its 15th year, the Blue Jean Ball always attracts hundreds of friends, faculty and students for a casual party to benefit students, faculty and programming initiatives in the Schools of Nursing.
Starting at 5 p.m., Conecuh Sausage will be served by nursing students. Haflinger-drawn and mule-drawn wagon rides, as well as tours of Dye’s home and lodge, will be offered. Bidding for items available in the silent auction will continue until 7:30 p.m. Quick draw artists will show off their skills. Local author Camille Foshee-Mason will sign copies of her book, “Duty Shoes: A Nurse’s Memoir.”
Curtiss, Auburn Montgomery’s beloved mascot, will be available for photos from 5:30-6:30 p.m., and Birds of Prey from the College of Veterinary Medicine’s Southeastern Raptor Center will be available from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Dinner with all the fixin’s from Moe’s Original BBQ will be served from 6-8 p.m. The Auburn Astronomical Society will lead a star viewing at 8 p.m.
The live auction, emceed by Dye and Auburn men’s basketball coach Bruce Pearl, will begin at 8:30 p.m. Kidd Blue will provide musical entertainment during dinner and following the live auction.
As always, guests are encouraged to don their favorite Western wear.
