WILLIAMS - Grand Opry Night is back. This time around, the always-entertaining semi-annual evening of music and family entertainment is part of a double bill at the Williams Rodeo Barn on Friday.

Immediately preceding the Opry, the Kiwanis Scholarship Spaghetti Dinner takes place from 4:30-6:15 p.m. Dinner is $5 for adults and $2 for children under 12. Donations will be taken for dessert.

Ruth Sanzari, Opry event organizor, said Opry Night is always a good time.

"The Grand Opry night is for the entire family, she said. "The cakewalks are always a hit with both younger and older people. This Opry night will be special with two teenagers taking part. Dakota and Dylan Beavers will be accompanied by their father on the violin. Dakota on guitar and Dylan singing."

Along with the Beavers family, the evening will feature country and western music by the Williams Opry Band, featuring Jan Bardwell on drums, Lance Beavers on bass guitar, Debi Campbell on guitar and Phil Sanzari on guitar.

Other performers will include Bev Jones, Pamelia LaPaglia, Patrick O'Brien, Joe Pronto, and Katie Wamble. Buck Williams will also be on hand to recite some of his always original cowboy poetry.

Cakewalks will occur throughout the evening with approximately 15 home-baked cakes given away to lucky participants.

Opry-goers are encouraged to come early to look over all the raffle and auction items up for bid. Raffle tickets are $1 each or six for $5. All proceeds from the live auction will benefit the Williams Habitat for Humanity chapter.

"By attending Opry night, you are making it possible for Habitat to build their second home this summer," Sanzari said. "The Opry nights have raised over $20,000 with the performances over the years."

Williams Habitat for Humanity plans to break ground on their second home in May.

Raffle items include a purse from Wild Spur, pewter picture frame, crock/tea towel and wooden utensils, 10 gallons of gasoline from Malones Automotive, and two meals from Pine Country Restaurant among many other items.

Up for auction will be two $100 gift certificates for horseback riding at Mountain Ranch Stables, Ryobi cordless drill and circular saw kit and a hand painted cake pedestal with server from the Seaoned Kitchen in Flagstaff.

For more information or to donate an item for raffle or auction, call Sanzari at (928) 635-0386.
