BIG NIGHT OUT
Big Night Out is our premier fundraiser and a big night for a big cause! Live entertainment, silent auction, and amazing food are just a few things to look forward to at Big Night Out.
On May 22, 2021 we held a VIRTUAL Big Night Out Reverse Raffle benefiting Riverside Ranch. While social distancing guidelines prevented us from gathering in person again this year, JWL's members and partners were committed in their support of this wonderful organization and were able to give $15,000 to Riverside Ranch to help them fund construction of a permanent structure, which will be used as a meeting space for counselors, riding instructors and families, as well as an accessible bathroom. Two of the BNO Reverse Raffle grand prize winners donated $1,000 to Riverside Ranch, bringing the total donated to $17,000.
Touch-A-Truck is our annual fall fundraising event. Our sixth annual Touch-A-Truck event will be held on November 6, 2021 in Downtown Smithfield. Join us to see vehicles and rigs of all sizes - from construction equipment and local emergency vehicles to tractors and even race cars! We will also have inflatables, face painting, and food trucks set up - a truly great family event!
Unfortunately, we had to cancel our 2020 event due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we were still able to give $12,000 to the Partnership for Children of Johnston County and help them create their Diaper Closet!
