HAM Festival raises funds for United Way

PLEASANT VALLEY — The third annual Heston Arts and Music (HAM) Festival is in its second day, and continues through this evening at 11 p.m. with music, food and family-friendly fun. Festivities began at 5 p.m. Friday, and lasted until midnight.

Heston Farm Winery and the United Way of Marion County partnered to help raise money for the United Way’s 21 member agencies. Admission is $10 per day for adults and $5 for children under the age of 12. A two-day pass was also available for adults for $17. All proceeds from admissions fees will go directly to the United Way.

Tiffany Samuels, executive director of the United Way of Marion County, said that the event has provided fun for the whole family.

“This is a family-oriented event. There aren’t many events that adults and children alike can go to and enjoy themselves,” Samuels said. “This gives an opportunity to sit back, listen to some great music, maybe have a sip of wine, while at the same time their children are being entertained with the bouncy house and the fun games.”
