In the spirit of Santa Barbara’s historical Rancho period, The Howard School is kicking off the 2013-2014 year with an entertaining old-fashioned hoedown benefit. The school’s annual fundraiser will include authentically-themed activities such as line dancing, a barbecue dinner, and live music by California’s Caught Red Handed.

Country line dance instruction will be offered throughout the event to the tunes of California’s Caught Red Handed -- a band that has shared the stage with such country legends as Vince Gill, Martina McBride, and Toby Keith.

The barbecue dinner will be prepared by Montecito Country Club’s Chef Blackwell, a beloved chef who visits Howard once a month to provide a delicious and healthy lunch for students. The dinner will pair with a gourmet whiskey tasting by distillery founder and head distiller Ian Cutler of Cutler’s Artisan Spirits, and will consist of a rich array of spirits including Grandma’s Apple Pie Liquor alongside spirited conversation about the art of craft distilling.

Based in the Carden curriculum, The Howard School offers an education to students in Pre-Kindergarten to Eighth Grade. Class sizes are small with roughly 12 children per class in order to provide the necessary attention and quality of education to each student. The Howard School’s curriculum offers instruction in not only the fundamentals of science, mathematics, and language arts, but also extends to thoroughly cover classic literature, French, poetry, art, music, drama, and daily physical education.

All funds raised from the Howard Hoedown go directly to student activities, with this year’s focus on a major upgrade to the school’s technology hardware and curriculum. Tickets can be purchased online. Country attire encouraged!
