Catered by Common Table

A Taste Around the World will be providing tastes from cultures around the world and in most instances, food grown and prepared by refugees from around the world.  Brownsboro Alliance is privileged to partner with Common Table to help support, grow and preserve the cultures of these refugees who are now settled in the Louisville Metro area.  BA’s support coincides with its own efforts to grow, preserve, and expand the present 15 miles of natural hiking and horseback riding trails in Oldham County, many of which are original farm trails and roadbeds.


Celebrating and Honoring Julie Willard

The evening will celebrate and honor Julie Willard, who passed away in 2016.  Julie was a Registered Nurse and formerly worked at Tri-County Baptist Hospital. She also was a member of the AVMA Auxiliary, Crestwood Civic Club, and the St. Aloysius School Board and Parish Council. She was an avid animal lover and passionate about riding and in 2015 established the Jan Shekell Memorial Trail Corporation in honor of her late sister, Jan Shekell.  There is a portion of the BATA trails now named in honor of Jan and Julie.


Music by the duet, “Barb & Eddie”

Barb & Eddie is a musical duo featuring Eddie Humphries, a world-class saxophonist who has performed with music’s biggest names throughout his career, and Barb Polk, a highly versatile who can sing everything from sultry jazz and standards to show tunes, pop, and rock ‘n roll. Together they create a full, live band sound by utilizing professionally arranged backing tracks and an amazing digital “wind machine” that can simulate hundreds of instruments. Barb & Eddie have been performing for music lovers since April 1997.


Featured Silent Auction Items


Minimum bid is $1,500 with availability in December 2017, January 2018, or February 2018.

Les Bourdeillettes is a 75-acre farm that straddles both sides of D-78, a pretty two-lane road that runs between the villages of Bourdeilles and Lisle. On the west, it is bordered by the small and picturesque Dronne River and on the east, south and north, by pasture and woodland. The main house, built c. 1800, features 5 bedrooms, a fully remodeled kitchen, and library.  The landscaped grounds include gardens, a small orchard, and swimming pool.  Les B. was created for people who love to travel and who are interested in returning to a home away from home for years to come. It is for people who want to enjoy the experience of living in the French countryside, as opposed to seeing it only through the quick eyes of a tourist.  Maximum number of guests: 8.


Minimum bid is $600 with a $100 cleaning fee.
