Cowpokes & Cocktails

April 27, 2019

Enjoy a festive night of delicious food, great friends and good old fashioned fun at the third annual Cowpokes & Cocktails fundraiser.

A MEANINGFUL CAUSE

The Eiteljorg’s third annual Cowpokes & Cocktails fundraiser is guaranteed to be another exciting night with friends, delicious food and good old-fashioned fun. This elegant event with a Western flair benefits the Eiteljorg Museum educational and public programming. By making a donation, attendees and sponsors will have real effects on local children of all backgrounds by encouraging them to express themselves through the arts while learning about the art, history and cultures of the American West and the indigenous peoples of North America.

This year’s event will be held on committee chair Cathy Turner’s property inside her transformed barn located in Zionsville from 5:30 – 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 27.
