On Saturday, June 23, 2018 the Kenadi Jean Weis Foundation is hosting the 3rd annual Kenadi’s Karnival & Silent Auction Fundraiser. This colorful Main Event is coming to the Spearfish High School grounds from ten in the morning ‘til four in the afternoon.
Our celebration will once again feature Carnival Games and Prizes, Bounce Castles, Petting Zoo, Balloon Creations, Strider Bicycle Course and Races, Train Rides, Face Painting, Disney Princesses & Super Heroes, Photo Booth, Dunk Tank, Sweet and Sizzling Fair Food, Live Entertainment and an amazing Silent Auction!
Because of generous people like yourselves, last year we welcomed over 1,100 attendees and raised nearly $60,000 toward our million dollar goal. We continue to raise funds to build the all-inclusive Kenadi Jean Playground Destination in Spearfish, SD. This unique and accessible environment will provide play opportunities for people of all ages and abilities which is critical for promoting fun, healthy physical activity, and learning.
Born in the heart of the Black Hills, Crazy Woman Creek Band consists of John “Slim” Culbertson on lead guitar/vocals, Bonnie “The Crazy Woman” Manitz on bass/vocals, Jim “The Slug” Foley on guitar/vocals, Jarrett Weimer on guitar/vocals, Taryn Cook on guitar/vocals, Gillian Roda on drums/vocals and Bethany Friesen on violin/vocals. They offer a Country sound with a Rock ‘n’ Roll backbone.
The acoustic classic country duo of Dan Coleman and Ja’net Persche are also part of the original music group, South Highway 85. These two self-proclaimed country bumpkins from up north play some mighty fine toe-tappin’ music!
Heath Johnson is an Americana Country singer/songwriter from Spearfish, SD. He organizes the South Dakota Songwriters group and activities around the Black Hills area and puts together songwriter’s rounds for other local artists. His musical influences range from classic country, to modern Americana, folk, and red dirt music. Along with his solo shows, he is also the lead in an Americana Honky Tonk band named The Ruthless West.
Jackie is a native to Rapid City. She is a lover of the arts and involved in many ways. You can find her playing guitar and singing downtown at restaurants and other venues. She is involved in the Firehouse Theater where she performs in plays and musicals. On the side she does large abstract paintings and recently illustrated her first children’s book.
Take a listen and enjoy her relaxed mix of chill, folk music.
We thank these fine musicians for sharing their talent on stage at Kenadi’s Karnival with all of us! Without them we’d be listening to a prerecorded playlist, and it doesn’t like applause nearly as much as they do!
