'Baubles And Bling' is what the benefit for the Mid Maine Homeless Shelter is called and it happens on Thursday evening, September 19 from 6pm-8pm at Calvary Temple, 60 West River Road in Waterville.  Organizer Lisa Riportella promises a big surprise at 7 o'clock for everyone in attendance.

Admission to the event is pretty simple....anything for the kitchen that the shelter can use.  It could be a can of soup or a blender or even a freezer.  Just bring something to give and you'll get in.

This is a ladies' night out with all kinds of "girlie" things according to the Baubles and Bling Facebook page.

Here are some of the things you can partake of at the event: Face painting, hair beading, photo booth, temporary tatoos, fried Oreos, pizzas from Awestruck Catering, Tupperware, Tastefully Simple, Texas Roadhouse, Kennebec Chocolates....and more!

Lisa is a ball of smiles and energy....a really positive force to lead events of this sort.  I'm sure with help from supporters of the work the Mid Maine Shelter does, this will be a great event! For more, go to our 'Community' page.
