Gunston’s “Boot Scootin’” Bull & Oyster Roast
October 22, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Gunston School’s Bull & Oyster Roast will be held outdoors on Gunston’s waterfront campus, overlooking the Corsica River on Saturday, October 22 from 5 to 9 p.m. The evening includes food provided by Phat Daddy’s BBQ and will feature a variety of oysters, pork, chicken, and beef BBQ, fried chicken and more. An open bar will provide an array of cold beer, wine, sweet tea, fresh lemonade, and a signature cocktail. This year’s event will have a dance floor with Good Vibrations Entertainment playing everything from country music, classic rock, and all the favorites from the last few decades.
With both a silent and live auction planned, guests will have the opportunity to bid on an array of fantastic vacations, golf outings, professional photography sessions, artwork, and more. This year’s live auction portion will be limited to just five big ticket items, leaving more time to scoot around the dance floor and shoot the breeze with fellow parents, faculty, alums, and community members. Tickets are on sale; all attendees must be 21 years of age or older.
“The Bull and Oyster Roast is such a fun way to come together to support the school,” explains Head of School John Lewis. “The funds we raise go directly to the Heron Annual fund, making up the difference between what tuition covers and the actual cost of running the school.”
“We are in need of auction items for both the live and silent portion,” adds Gunston Parents’ Association (GPA) President Irene Hansen ’23. “We are looking for everything from vacation packages to restaurant gift certificate baskets, special experiences, artwork, services, and more.”
