Party at Bijou on Saturday

Bijou Community Park will provide the setting for a Sunday in the Park event hosted by Ordinary People Meeting Extraordinary Needs. OPEN will come together Sept. 9 to provide live music, food, games and drawing prizes. The event will begin at 10 a.m. and go until 4 p.m. The cost is $5 per person or $20 per family, which includes one free drawing ticket per person. Separate drawing tickets will be available for a vintage car offering.

Featured entertainment will include Lavish Green and the Tahoe Improv Players. Gospel music will start the day with Sweet Chocolate from Reno, accompanied by backup singers and musicians. Sittin’ in with Mark and Roger will provide a variety of music from country to rock ‘n roll and The Black Bear Piper’s Society, a Celtic/bagpipe group with local roots, will provide such inspirational classics as “Amazing Grace.”

Food will be available for purchase and games will be offered for children. Churches and other groups who have sponsored events to help a particular individual in medical need will be present to offer their own drawing prizes to directly benefit someone of their choice.

OPEN is a South Tahoe-based organization formed in 1990 by volunteers who saw a need to help people who either have no medical insurance or have needs that far exceed their coverage. It serves all counties that touch Lake Tahoe and is staffed entirely by volunteers. All proceeds from the event will go to help those in the community around the lake. For more information or to volunteer time or a drawing prize call JoAnn at (530) 544-7412.
