Boot Scootin' Ball



Story and photography by Liz Lyons

The Boot Scootin’ Ball isn’t your typical Friday evening affair. This high-end, western-themed event encourages you to put on your boots and get on the dance floor with line dancing and music provided by the award-winning Montgomery Gentry Band. Other treats include signature moonshine cocktails, bottomless beer in your mason jar mug and a chance to take home a unique item from a silent auction that claims to be “Texas sized.”

As if that weren’t enough, all of this fun is for a good cause. The Boot Scootin’ Ball benefits Knox Area Project Access which is a broad-based community charity created to provide access to health care for low-income, uninsured individuals in Knox County. Since 2006, Knox Area Project Access has coordinated more than $222 million dollars in donated health care to more than 27,000 low income East Tennesseans without access to health insurance or government sponsored program.
