Join the Harford County Education Foundation for an Old-Fashioned Shin Dig


Foundation to host Smokin and Shuckin, a themed fundraiser, to support Harford County Students

The Harford County Education Foundation will host an inaugural annual fundraiser, Smokin and Shuckin, on Friday, June 21st, 2019 from 6-10 p.m. at the Richlin Catering and Event Center, located in Edgewood, MD. Proceeds from the fundraiser will help support public school students, to ensure they have the resources needed to succeed in school, work and life.

The old-fashioned country shindig will include BBQ chicken and ribs, a baked potato bar, a raw oyster bar and an ice cream sundae bar. Beer and wine will be served during the event. Entertainment will feature a live performance by DJ Bill Fritz and Sons, line dancing, games and raffles, and a chance auction.

“The goal of our fundraising efforts is to ensure that all of our local students have the tools and resources they need to succeed in school. Not all children have access to the technology, books or other academic tools they may need to participate in learning in the classroom. We work to create equal opportunity for all Harford County students,” says Debora Gavin Merlock, president of the foundation. “We’d like to thank anyone who can come out and support us while enjoying an evening of fun and games!”
