DARIEN — Party lovers kicked up their heels and slammed some cheers Saturday night when the Darien Nature Center held its “Bluegrass, Bourbon & Blue Jeans” fundraiser for the Joshua House Fund at the Darien Nature Center.

The event was a 20th anniversary party for the Darien-based nonprofit, which works to address housing issues for the poor, primarily in the Appalachian section of Kentucky.

The themed party included music by Nashville-based singer and songwriter Doug Allen, who hails from this area.
