Kickn' it Country

April 26

Kickn' it Country is the Coquitlam Foundation's annual fund raiser. Kickin’ it Country is going to be a hoot'n and holler'n good time and you don’t have to get all dressed up. Just wear what you’d wear to round up the cattle.

The event will include both a silent and live auction of donations and the music is bound to get your feet a stomp'n. The food is, as always, going to satisfy the hungriest cowboy or cowgirl.

Let your neighbours know about it, let your friends know about it and bring your enthusiasm and your dancing boots.
