Several activities are outlined for the first C.A.V.E. Bash, which will benefit many local needy families.
Community Against Violent Expressions (C.A.V.E.) is not accepting any cash donations or entry fees at the event, set for noon to 7 p.m. Oct. 19 in Redbud Park in Marlow. Instead, only toys, hats, gloves and non-perishable foods will be accepted.
“(C.A.V.E.) will distribute the goods to families who contact us needing help,” said Ann Sanchez, organizer.
“We load everything on a trailer with Santa and Mrs. Claus and go caroling as we distribute the goods.”
There will be a Trick or Treat Walk for children in costume starting at 4 p.m. Goody bags will be handed out to the first 300 kids in costume in line for the walk. Sanchez said the Marlow Fire Department will have a fire engine at the park for the children to see and the AirEvac team will also have its helicopter on site at the event.
Concerts featuring seven bands will take place throughout the afternoon and evening with the Allen Biffle Band closing the event.
Car, motorcycle, ATV/dirtbike and truck shows are scheduled. To enter, the participant must provide $20 worth of goods as an entry fee.
Almost 30 vendors have already signed up to participate in the bash, said Sanchez.
Those interested in joining can contact her at 580-641-6600. To become a vendor, you must provide $30 worth of goods.
