For the eighth year, CASA of Campbell County is hosting its Bluegrass Breakdown and is planning to have better sound, great music and a long list of fantastic auction items.

On March 28, at 6 p.m. in the Campbell County High School auditorium, three groups will be performing bluegrass favorites.

Those performing include Larry Gillis and the Hard Driving Bluegrass Band, The Holloway Sisters and Outta the Blue and Mason Capps. 

These music groups combined with over 60 silent auction items will make the event worth attending.

 Music will fill the air for around three hours of the evening. An elaborate sound system donated by Burrell’s Music will make the sound quality better than in years past, said CASA County Coordinator Maggie Inscho. A silent auction and concessions will be available throughout the event.

Items available during the silent auction include tickets to many attractions in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge including the Comedy Barn, Dollywood and Ripley’s Aquarium. Tickets for Kentucky Splash County and the Grand Ole Opry are also being auctioned at the event as well as many more items.

Tickets for the event are $10 and go to benefit CASA of Campbell County. Discounted tickets are available for anyone in the armed service presently or past for $8.

A tribute to the armed forces will be presented by John Wayne look-alike Bob Sieber.

The money is used to advocate for abused children, said Inscho.

“All the money stays in Campbell County and is used for Campbell County children,” said Inscho.

Tickets for the event can be purchased at WLAF, Gifts From Above, Burrell’s Music and the CASA office.
