The 2019 Middleburg Humane Foundation Blue Jean Ball held at the Middleburg Barn at Fox Chase Farm netted more than $300,000 for the shelter last month.

The 221 guests who attended this year thoroughly enjoyed the evening, with lively bidding and a lot of dancing and singing along with the band Livin’ the Dream. This event is their largest fundraiser of the year. Funds raised go to support the specialized shelter which costs $57,000 per month to run.

“The organization is thrilled and grateful to the Middleburg community and guests who traveled in from Northern Virginia and Washington, DC.,” said MHF Director of Development Melanie Burch.
