The Farm Benefit at The Club at Bennie's Red Barn

We had an awesome time last Sunday, July 20th, when we had the opportunity to play at a benefit for The Farm, which is located on St. Simons Island, hosted by The Club at Bennie's Red Barn. The Farm is a rescue, rehabilitation, retirement, and hospice home for animals who need a healthy, happy place to live and be loved and cared for. We had an absolute blast, and knowing that we were doing something to help these innocent creatures who spend their entire lives loving their humans only made it more fun!  

The Farm has animals of all sorts, including horses, cows, goats, geese, chickens, sheep, cats, dogs, and rabbits, and the volunteers and kind souls who run the place dedicate their time, energy, and resources to caring for these animals. Volunteers are always welcomed at The Farm to give some love to these sweet animals! They also have an open house most Sunday afternoons from 2 - 4 PM Eastern time, though other visits are by appointment only, so you can get to know some of the animals on The Farm. 

And of course, we would be remiss not to mention Tunsis himself! Tunsis is a very large goat who runs The Farm on his own terms and schedule. If he's in the mood, you might be able to meet Tunsis while visiting The Farm.  Tunsis is very opinionated and lets everyone who enters The Farm know that they are on his turf and must do things on "Tunsis Time," as the fundraiser T-shirts showcase - all in good humor - because Tunsis is loved by all who visit and volunteer.

However, if volunteering doesn't fit into your schedule, or if you live too far away to make it to the island, you can make a tax deductible donation to make sure these animals get the love and care they deserve! And if you just aren't an animal person, The Farm utilizes many skills of volunteers for keeping it running smoothely, safely and effectively, so think outside of the box and put your skills to work at The Farm. We can't wait to head over and volunteer ourselves. 

We're so grateful to Wayne Thompson and everyone who made it possible for us to be involved in such an incredible event for this great cause. The Club at Bennie's Red Barn, did a fantastic job putting this event together, and we can't wait to head back down to St. Simons to play again!  Make your plans now for 2nd Sunday at Gascoinge Bluff on Aug. 10th, 2014 from 1pm - 7pm; we'll be there for another great fundraiser! 

Lots of love,

Beau + Luci
