The 'Barn Babes' raise funds and build a home.

The Barn at Bay Horse Inn took time out to participate in the 2017 Habitat for Humanity of Johnson County Women's Build.

The Habitat for Humanity of Johnson County Women's Build consists of several women lead teams who agree to raise funds and then show up as a team on an assigned build day to build the home. This year's home recipient, Kristy Mitchell and her kids, were carefully selected by Habiat of JC and will move in the home before the new year. 

Team captain, Karen Brandon, of My Marketing Gals, organized 20 local ladies to raise funds for this great cause. The team consisted of many local friends and partners as well as barn staff.  Each team member was responsible for raising funds. Several donated the funds from their own business or sought a sponsor, while many had individual fundraisers and then the team held a Barn Benefit on August 10th at the Barn. Many amazing companies and local shops donated items for a silent auction and the public joined us for live music, drinks and shopping while enjoying the beautiful evening outside. The event raised nearly $2,000 and our teams total contribution to Habitat for Humanity of Johnson County was just under $6,000.

"As you wish!" was our response.

When Mutual Savings Bank called us to see if we would be interested in helping them, of course our response was "As you wish".  They had sponsored the movie The Princess Bride at The Historic Artcraft Theatre here in Johnson County and hoped we could add a few touches.   Taking cues from The Princess Bride movie we looked to bring nature into the display.  Our team didn't have to go far as the property is filled with lots of branches this time of year.  Browse through the photos below to see the project come to life.  (Mac even donated a stick or two of his own and offered to supervised.)  Go see The Princess Bride this weekend! Support this terrific local theatre, The Historic Artcraft Theatre and our favorite local bank Mutual Savings Bank.  If you are getting married in the barn and want a custom twig display we can do that too!
