Rose Mary C. Brooks Place will be rocking Friday evening for its annual Boots and BBQ fundraiser.

For the seventh year, Boots and BBQ is the lone fundraiser for Brooks Place, a non-profit assisted living facility off Bypass Road in Winchester.

Brooks Place Marketing Director Carol Bennett said this year’s event will feature The Bent Penny Band, which includes members from throughout central Kentucky.

According to the band’s website, their repertoire ranges from Johnny Cash and Dwight Yoakam to The Beach Boys, Creedence Clearwater Revival and The Eagles.

The menu includes barbecue, all the fixings and beer with each ticket.

Bennett said there will also be a live auction with items including a carbine rifle, six box seat tickets to Keeneland, rounds of golf at Indian Creek Golf Course in Mount Sterling and a condo and golf outing, among other items.

The event usually attracts about 300 people and the proceeds support the facility and its needs.

Tickets are $60 each or $480 for a table of eight. For tickets or more information, call Bennett at 745-4904.
