LYNCHBURG — It’s a fun night at one of the most picturesque spots in Moore County and it’s all for a good cause. On Wednesday, United Way of Highway 55 Director Ashley Abraham announced that this year’s United in Spirits fundraiser will take place at Jack Daniel’s Distillery’s BBQ Hill on May 21.

In addition to the fabulous view, tickets include dinner, entertainment, and an opportunity to enjoy a little local product. Tickets are limited and cost $85 per person and can be purchased by clicking here. In addition to individual tickets, VIP sponsorship packages are also available.

“As Jack Daniel himself did back in the day, the Distillery loves to give back to our communities in a way that helps families, and neighbors in Tennessee,” said Jack Daniel’s Marsha Manley Hale, who sits on the United Way of Highway 55 Board. “United Way is able to help so many with their programs and we are glad to partner with them for the United in Spirit event in May.”

Funds raised will be allocated to local nonprofits in three counties including Moore, Coffee, and Warren. Last year non-profit allocations went to groups like Partners For Healing, HorsePlay, Haven of Hope, Hospice of Highland Rim, and others.
