Health Learning Community to Host Fall Festival Nov. 21

Posted on Monday, November 16, 2009 [8:09 AM]

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Area families can have a good time while helping out a good cause Saturday at Lindsey Wilson College.

Students in Lindsey Wilson's Health Learning Community are sponsoring a fall festival Saturday, Nov. 21, in the college's Biggers Sports Center. The event begins at noon CT. It is free and open to the public.

The fall festival will include inflatables for children, carnival games, a cake walk, cornhole tournament a face-painting for the kids. Lindsey Wilson faculty and staff will participate in a "Pie in the Face" event in which they charge for people to throw a pie in their face.

Earlier in the day, "Cuties for a Cause" will be held in the college's V.P. Henry Auditorium. The pageant -- open to females ages 0-22 and males 0-5 -- will be held at 10 a.m. CT. Registration is $10 early, $15 day of the pageant and $3 to enter the photogenic category for the age division.

All proceeds from the fall festival and pageant will be used to support Center for Courageous Kids of Allen County, Ky. The Center for Courageous Kids is a world-class medical camp that operates solely on donations.

"With the temperatures dropping, we wanted to do something that would give people a chance to do something inside and also help out a good cause," said Lindsey Wilson sophomore Ashley Adamson of Columbia, who is a member of the Health Learning Community. "The Center for Courageous Kids does incredible things for children who have medical issues."

For more information about the fall festival or "Cuties for a Cause," contact LWC biology instructor Tabitha Ellis at or (270) 384-8195.
