3rd Annual Tangles’ Fall Bazaar and Pink Ribbon Project set for Saturday

Live Oak — The 3rd Annual Tangles’ Fall Bazaar and Pink Ribbon Project presented by Shands Live Oak Regional Medical Center, is set for Saturday, Oct. 13, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Tangles is located at 12986 Hwy 90W, Live Oak, just past Wayne Frier Mobile Home Park.   Ministry leaders Angie Lott and Vickie Bass announced that a portion of this year’s annual fundraiser also benefits Bosom Buddies, Suwannee County’s local breast cancer support group, as well as local Tropical Storm Debby flood victims, through LOVE, INC.

An exciting array of mini-events and activities are slated for this year’s event, including arts and crafts vendors, food vendors, book-signing by local author Jeffry Boatright, fun and creative children's activities, a bake sale and a mini-art show. Representatives will be on hand from local agencies providing information on how you can become involved in organizations such as Love INC, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America, the American Cancer Society, 4-H and many others. The Suwannee County Health Department will be on-site providing free health screenings and qualifying for free mammograms. Shands Live Oak RMC will host a health fair to include glucose (fasting) and cholesterol screenings, BMI, blood pressure checks, nutrition counseling and other services.    

Live entertainment this year features a string ensemble from The Music Center, including a group of violinists, a cellist and a pianist. They have played for events such as the Olustee Festival, June Bug Festival, Chocolate Festival, Christmas on the Square and more. Also performing will be a guitar ensemble that will play standard and recognizable hits.  

Headlining this year’s entertainment is Ernie Evans and The Florida State Bluegrass Band. Known for their strong lead vocals, classic hits and ability to entertain their audiences, The Florida State Bluegrass Band is rapidly gaining a widespread fan base across the United States. They have a unique ability to cover both traditional and contemporary bluegrass styles. The band just returned from an appearance at The Station Inn in Nashville, Tennessee. Returning this year as emcee is local award-winning educator, Marcia Boatright. Other acts will be announced at a future date.  Entertainment is sponsored by Poole Realty, Farmers’ Cooperative and The Music Center.  

Lott and Bass announced an exciting addition to this year’s event. 
“We were surprised several weeks ago by a phone call from Becky Skipper of Go Figure for Women,” said Lott. “She wanted to organize a 5K run for the event, with all registration proceeds to go to Tangles’ and the other two organizations Fall Bazaar is benefiting. Becky has organized the entire event and we are so excited about this new addition to Fall Bazaar.”  
Go Figure for Women returns this year to host the wildly popular Pink Ribbon Project Zumbathon with all registration proceeds to benefit the event. The Suwannee-Hamilton Technical Center Cosmetology Department will also be on hand again this year with a Pink! Pink! Pink! “beautification booth.” There's something for the whole family to enjoy!

There is no admission charge for this family-oriented event. For information or vending contact Vickie Bass at 386-590-1543 or e-mail shabbyT@hotmail.com.
