The Ribbons of Hope Foundation raised $5,300 with its Tablescapes event Saturday evening at the Lincoln Senior Center, which will help the organization make a difference in the lives of Talladega County residents affected by cancer. Ribbons President Pat Hogge explained that volunteers decorated tables of eight seats each in a theme of their choice, and sold tickets to the event at $20 per seat. The guest list included 225 people, and many made additional donations. Miss Alabama 2013 Chandler Champion and her sister, Zoe Champion, provided entertainment, accompanied by their father, Shane Champion, on piano. Additional entertainment was by Terry LaTaste. Ribbons’ biggest event of the year, the Ribbons of Hope Charity Benefit, will be presented Oct. 11 at 800 Shelton Shores Drive, Talladega. Last year’s benefit raised $21,000. Tickets for the luncheon and live auction are $30 each, and are available from Hogge, vice president Adam Castleberry, secretary Mitzi Smith, treasurer Lisa Walton or board members Sally Flowers, Travis McGrady, Alan Watson, Kathy Shropshire, Jill Lackey, Paula Little, Marshall McGrady, Madiera Burks, Joel Elliott, Avery Emory, Nickolas Smith, Dorothy Castleberry and Roben Duncan. The organization is planning to add a gospel jubilee featuring well-known singers to its list of fund-raising events next year.
