The third annual fundraiser drawdown to benefit Shadows of the Blue and Gray will be held this Saturday, March 14 at the Princeton Moose Lodge.
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., with dinner served at 6 pm. Tickets are $40, which includes dinner for two. The drawdown’s grand prize is $750, second is $500, and third is $250.
Event organizer Edd Robinson says you don’t have to be present to win, but the purchase of a ticket is required.
The money raised will help support the 23rd annual Shadows of the Blue and Gray Civil War living history re-enactment in Princeton, which is scheduled for October.
If you would just like to attend and have dinner with Civil War-era re-enactors dressed in period clothing, tickets for dinner alone will be $15 per person.
People are invited to spend the evening, bid on silent auction items and help support the event. Robinson says 100 percent of the donations made at the fundraiser are put back into the Civil War re-enactment event.
