Wilson County, TN — The community came together on Thursday evening, November 14, at Tucker’s Gap Event Center to help raise money for Hickory Hill Farm, a local non-profit. The funds raised will be utilized for the organization’s general funding including life saving vetting and care for rescued equines as well as community programs such as Reading with Rescues. 

Event Chair, Rhonda Caskey, stated, “We want to thank all of the volunteers and the community for attending the banquet. It truly takes a village to make an organization such as Hickory Hill Farm successful.”

The Benefit Banquet was a first of its kind for the organization which was founded in January of 2016. Entertainment was provided by talented musicians, Julie Nickell and Retired Sgt. Scotty Hasting, while a delicious meal was served by Wildberry Cafe & Catering. 

“We are grateful and blessed to be in this community that is so committed to supporting organizations like ours.” Rescue Director, Shea Hutsenpiller, continued, “The work we do with people and forgotten animals in Tennessee simply wouldn’t be possible without the contributions received at events like this.” 

Hickory Hill Farm is a 100% volunteer run organization operating primarily via donations. You can learn more or assist with the organization’s mission by donating at hickoryhillfarmtn.org/donate. The organization is looking forward to their final fundraiser of the year to wrap things up on December 3rd in participation with the global day of giving, Giving Tuesday. The year end fundraising event is open to all! Visit the farm for hayrides, hot cocoa, s’mores, food, craft activities, adoptable animals, and more. The day kicks off with a Story Time at the barn at 9:30 am and will end with Christmas movies in the barn at 6pm.
