More than 200 friends, families and neighbors gathered at the Roberts Ranch Round-Up event on Saturday, October 10 to help raise money for Haven Hospice’s unreimbursed patient care, grief support and community education programs throughout the Putnam County Area.
The event, which was hosted by Irving and Norlene Roberts who are long-time supporters of Haven Hospice, included dinner catered by Blue Water Bay and Country Caterers, live music from Keith Godwin and the Rio Grande Band, a skeet shooting contest and a 50/50 raffle drawing with a grand prize of $2,000. Several items were featured in the silent and live auctions including a week-long stay at a Treasure Coast Resort, a week-long trip to a St. Augustine Beach condo, a Yeti cooler, a bicycle, assorted gift baskets and three cakes baked by local donors Irma Kaye, Tim Parker and Norlene Roberts to name a few.
Guests were offered tours of Roberts Ranch, Ag-Pro Companies of Hastings generously provided the Gator Utility Vehicles to allow guests to tour Roberts Ranch. Les Sims repeated as the winner of the skeet shooting contest and was awarded a trophy and gift basket.
