(MONTROSE CO 08/16/14)— Habitat for Humanity of Montrose County brings its
Prohibition Era Moonshiners Event back to the Habitat Barn for year two on August 16th.
A highlight to this year’s event is the addition of four Burlesque Dancers who will be
serving up entertainment with dance performances throughout the night, including
trapeze-style stunts. In addition to the dancers, this year’s event will also include a new
layout with a VIP gambling tent, more space for dancing and socializing as well as a
new stage set up for the Anders Brothers Band.
The moonshine will be literally trucked all the way from Durham, NC.
“Last year’s event was an incredible success and we anticipate event greater successes
this year with higher attendance and an ever-improving program,” says Development
Director Heather Zeilman. “It’s mind blowing to think that the Prohibition was only 100
years ago! This night lets us all step back into history, including dressing up in a 1920s
fashion. Think “The Great Gatsby”. For those needing a safe ride home, Turner Toyota
will be providing a free shuttle service during and after the event.
VIP tables are still available and include a gambling table for 8 in the VIP tent with its
own food bar and cocktail waitress. Contact Zeilman for more information.
Other Moonshiners Ball sponsors include: The Presenting Sponsor, The Bank of
Colorado, Abrams, Alpine Bank, Bank of the West, the City of Montrose, Chilis, Flower
