The Cowboy Up Kaua‘i fundraiser, scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Kalaheo Neighborhood Center, features a Chuck Wagon Dinner catered by Mark’s Place, country line dancing and kachi kachi dancing with a live band. There will also be games, prizes and a silent auction.

Tickets are $40 per person and can be purchased at Del’s Feed in Puhi, Kujo’s Market in Kalaheo, Pineapples & Palms Gallery in Koloa, Nukumoi Surf Shop and Brennecke’s Deli in Po‘ipu, Dally-Up and Healani’s Nails in Kalaheo.

Tickets will also be available at the door, starting at 5 p.m..
