This Saturday will mark the 10th Annual Anderson Humane Society Garden Party which promises a whole new experience featuring the “Tastes of Lawrenceburg.”

Starting ten years ago, the garden party has been an extremely successful fundraising event for the Anderson Humane Society.  It has also brought entertainment and local art to Anderson County.  According to the humane society president, Karen Tucker, the party draws guests all the way from Louisville and Ohio each year.

This year’s party will feature a very different meal, bringing together all the restaurants from around the county.  Called the “Tastes of Lawrenceburg,” Karen explained that Christy Jane’s on Main, Off the Ground Coffee Shop, Heaven’s to Betsy, Hill of Beans BBQ, Bluegrass Sabor, and Don Pedro’s will all be bringing their best offerings to the party.  According to Karen, Chef Adam Shrout, former owner of the Talk of the Town Restaurant, helped organize the meal.

Also new this year is a special celebrity guest.  Well known and award winning garden designer, television guest, and author, Jon Carloftis will be at the party.  He has also donated a signed copy of his book to be auctioned off.

In addition to local and regional art to be auctioned at the party, many local businesses donated items to be auctioned as well.  They include items from Maynard’s Studio, Mrs. Cox’s Shop, Tastefully Kentucky, Markwell Farms, Wild Turkey Trace, and Lawrenceburg Family Dentistry.  Four Roses have also donated a special tour and private tasting.

The party will be held this Saturday, May 20th, from 6:30-9pm at 524 South Main Street with live music by the Native American group, Ancestral Winds.  For more information and to see the art to auctioned as well as RSVP, check out the humane society’s website.
