2009: Throwdown at the Charity Hoedown

Ludlow Streetscapes held a BBQ and Auction on October 10, 2009:  The Throwdown at the Charity Hoedown.  A full program was held from 6:00 pm to 10:30 pm under the tent behind the Pot Belly restaurant.

The BBQ featured a cook off where the guests, as well as a celebrity panel, were the judges.

The cook-off was between two local providers: Curtis Bar-B-Que of Chester, VT and Squeels on Wheels of Mt. Holly, VT

We also served:

*  BBQ Chicken provided by Ludlow Side Hill Cronchers
*  Coleslaw provided by Killarney’s
*  Beans, cornbread and cow pies courtesy of Streetscapes’ members

The evening ended with Square Dancing (with instruction) to the music of Run Mountain

The live Auction featured one-of-a-kind milking stools, painted and decorated by local artists, and unique benches made by local craftsmen. The stools and benches were sponsored by local businesses and friends of Streetscapes.

Also in the auction were a South African Photo Safari, and a villa vacation for four in Tuscany.

A SPECIAL thanks went to our artists and sponsors without whom this would not be possible. The proceeds from the auction helped to fund our continuing efforts to beautify Ludlow.
