Tickets are on sale for 4th White Linen Night
HUNTINGTON -- The fourth annual White Linen Night at Heritage Station is set for 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 30.
The event is a take on an old southern tradition celebrating the last time you can officially don your polished summer whites before Labor Day, and it is hosted by the Children's Home Society of West Virginia.
In its fourth year, the local party is now a mainstay for the Labor Day weekend in Huntington.
Jennifer Hill is the community support coordinator and permanency social worker for the society in Cabell County. Hill, a native of New Orleans, said the southern tradition has been embraced by the Huntington community.
"In New Orleans, White Linen Night is a wonderful annual event that allows participants to pull out their summer best for the last time and showcase a vibrant downtown and community," Hill said. "Heritage Station with its wonderful shops is a perfect backdrop for the event and a great setting to celebrate our community and how much the local community helps support Children's Home Society's mission."
Heritage Station is located at 210 11th St., Huntington.
Proceeds will benefit Children's Home Society's local emergency shelter, Hovah Hall Underwood Children's Home, local foster care services and community-based mentoring program.
The evening will include live jazz performed by Dale Jones and the Backyard Dixie Jazz Stompers, appetizers from local caterers Bon Appetit Catering and Sweet Blessings, silent auction and an art show highlighting local West Virginia artists. The event is sponsored by Bagby, Johnson and Associates, Liquid Catering, Art for the Soul and Sanitary Linen Services.
Tickets are $50 per person, $90 per couple and $325 for a table for eight. For more information or to reserve tickets, contact Jennifer Hill at 304-743-2344 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
