The venue, a 20 acre field located near 1450 West Kingston Springs Road that borders both the Harpeth River and Turnbull Creek. Known locally as “Liles River Bottom” there will be access to the event by river or road. A Paddle Adventures Unlimited Meet-up group has been created especially for this event that will provide the opportunity to paddle to the event as a group by river and stay for the day with take-out in the evening.
In addition to an eclectic mix of music there will be pit bar-b-que, grilled burgers and ribs, an afternoon horseshoe tournament, a silent auction, wine and cheese welcome tent and an inflatable for small children.
The cost is $10. Children, 12 and under are free. The Springaroo admission price does not cover the cost of food or beverages, however all food and activities will be reasonably priced. Donations also will be accepted the day of the event for this benefit.
Organizer, Leslie Allen says, “The Harpeth Springaroo is a benefit for five people who are currently struggling with the pain and financial hardship caused by this disease. All net proceeds will be divided equally among five people, ranging in age from 21 to their early fifties who have mounting medical expenses. We hope this day will be especially memorable and fun for everyone that is able to join us along the river for this excellent cause.”
A silent auction will take place at the Springaroo from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. with all items on display. Highest bidders will be announced by 4:00 p.m. Items include a painting by Henry Isaacs of the Harpeth River Bottom, canoe rentals, wine, artistic sculpture by Twisted Sisters, jewelry, Lugo’s gift certificate, Karen’s gift certificate and much more.
