Surrounded by the ambiance of a working barn, walls loaded with interesting antique signs, tools, farm implements, and even a mouser kitten, over 300 guests enjoyed a homemade BBQ dinner. Dean Saunders and sales agents personally cook the BBQ meat in a trailer-sized professional BBQ cooker for 24 hours to create the best BBQ found. All side dishes, cowboy beans, potato salad, rolls, and desserts were prepared by the Saunders’ family, wife Gina, daughter Lauren, staff Brigid Quill, and others.
The annual event was started by SVN | Saunders Real Estate eight years ago and the last two years, was co-hosted with SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler Realty. The event, held in late October or first of November each year, brings in clients, friends, vendors, and elected officials for what is known as “just a get-together to have fun.”
Attendees kicked back in “The Barn,” of Leland and Wanda Young in Alturas, FL. Music and food were the agenda, along with the special announcement and unveiling of the 8th commissioned painting for 2012.
