The Raise the Roof for Hibiscus Children’s Center “Gone Country” event was a roarin’ good time!  Held at the Martin County Fairgrounds in Stuart, our cowboys and cowgirls had a wonderful evening kickin’ up their boots to old and new Country hits while they danced the night away!

A special highlight of the evening was the line dancing, led by O.L.D. Line Dancers (Obsessed Line Dancers). Everyone had a great time learning the steps and showing off their talents on the dancefloor!

Guests enjoyed cocktails and country cuisine inspired by the wild, wild west and had the chance to bid on great silent auction gift baskets and country music memorabilia.
