Catered by Common Table

Under the August Moon featured new selections from Louisville’s Common Table, which offers a variety of dishes from cultures around the world.  Brownsboro Alliance is privileged to partner again with Common Table to help support, grow and preserve the cultures of 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.  Read more about Common Table on their website.

Celebrating and Honoring Ned Bonnie

The evening celebrated and honored Ned Bonnie, who passed away in March.  Ned was a founding visionary, conservationist, and landowner for the BATA Trails and Oldham County.  You can read more about Ned’s accomplished life and accolades here.

Music by the duet, “Barb & Eddie”

Barb & Eddie returned to our annual fundraiser after their fun and entertaining performance at last year’s A Taste Around the World!

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

Under the August Moon’s Silent Auction was a great success.  Here are some of our featured items among over 50 specialty items and exclusive gift cards:

Minimum Bid: $2,000

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.  Available for a 1-week stay in 2019 on mutually agreed upon dates between donor and winning bidder.



Minimum Bid: $750

Value: $2,500

Rustic cabin, nestled in a compound full of personality and history, sleeps ten (10) comfortably with five (5) bedrooms (1 King, 1 Queen, and 6 Twins) and four (4) full baths. Located in the Lac Desert ZEC, one of Canada’s protected conservation areas, this is one vacation spot you can be sure your tribe will never forget.

Enjoy 7-days and 6-nights in 2019. Spend your days fishing, swimming, and exploring the pristine lake by kayak or small fishing boat – be sure to keep on the lookout for wildlife! Make a nightly date to watch the sunset from your lakeside view cabin porch, then warm up on cool nights with a one-of-a-kind open, indoor fireplace. And if you book during the last two weeks in July, make time for stargazing under the perfectly clear night skies.

If you are looking to unplug and unwind, this off the beaten path destination, nestled in the Canadian bush, will deliver the ultimate experience in getting away… eh?

The bar is Hell or High Water, a speakeasy-style joint that’s survived both fire and flood…”
