The Highway 50 Wagon Train will be heading to Placerville in June and funds are needed to ensure a safe and successful trip.
To help raise money for the annual event a group of dedicated supporters is putting on a “Spaghetti Western.”
The Wagon Train fundraiser is Saturday, April 23, from 4 to 9 p.m. at the Pollock Pines/Camino Community Center, 2675 Sanders Drive in Pollock Pines.
The night will feature a spaghetti dinner, no host bar, prizes, auction and music by Hickory Wind and the Kendra Carroll Band.
To add to the festivities there will be celebrity servers. Ted Gaines, Sheriff John D’Agostini, Placerville Police Chief George Nielsen, El Dorado County supervisors, El Dorado County CEO Laurel Brent-Bumb and more will be working.
Auctioneer Ray Nutting will have some items up for bid.
Cheryll Kent and friends from the Hickory Wind band (hickorywindmusic.com) will be playing from 4 to 6:30 p.m. The Hickory Wind sound would not be unfamiliar to anyone who knows the music of Gram Parsons, the Byrds, and Emmylou Harris and the Hot Band. Award winning pedal steel player Dave Wren adds a delightful dimension to Hickory Wind’s “not your normal” country music.
The music continues with the Kendra Carroll Band to get everyone out on the dance floor.
Tickets are $10 and are available at the door.
