Cakery Creation, Curley Tail Design, Flagler Spirits, Fun Coast Bartending and more have donated items and services to the event. There will be special locally made beer, a hay ride up to the house, and of course, a headless horseman to complete the Sleepy Hollow vision.
The evening’s entertainment will include a silent auction and a performance by The Appleseed Collective band from Ann Arbor, MI. Their musical style includes a blend of "swing, bluegrass, Dixieland ditties and alluring gypsy-folk whirls." Silent auction items include Molta Bella jewelry, a gift certificate to Serendipity, barbecue for a year from Woody’s, a guitar, acupuncture, framed photography by Ed Siarkowicz, and so much more.
Local restaurant Woody’s Bar-B-Q, and Finn’s Beachside Pub have contributed to the event by booking The Appleseed Collective band the night before and the day after the fundraiser.

The Josh Crews Writing Project was created by family and friends after Josh’s life was taken before his story was ever finished. An avid reader and prolific writer, Josh believed knowledge was power and his legendary storytelling skills touched everyone he met. The writing project was set up through the Flagler County Education Foundation to continue Josh’s legacy of encouraging and empowering young creative writers in Flagler County elementary schools. All proceeds from the event will support this endeavor.
