Community: Blacksburg Junior Women’s Club to host "Re-Run for the Roses"

  • 0

The Blacksburg Junior Women's Club was all set to have our Kentucky Derby-themed "Run for the Roses" last year before we had to cancel due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year, we are doing a "Re-Run for the Roses"!

So hold onto your hats, adjust your bow ties, and get ready to join us for our annual March of Ales fundraiser virtually from Friday, March 26, through Sunday, March 28.

Guests will be able to partake in most of the usual fun, including dressing up in their best Kentucky Derby attire for the “Best in Show” contest, bidding on auction items, and learning more about how BJWC’s service projects benefit the New River Valley and beyond while sipping mint juleps in the comfort of their own homes.

All money raised at March of Ales is used to fund service projects and donations throughout the year. These funds have benefited groups and causes such as Special Olympics, Salvation Army, Ronald McDonald House, Montgomery County Christmas Store and many others.

BJWC welcomes anyone who has been chomping at the bit for some good, socially distant fun to join them for this event! General attendance is free.

Just keep rolling with those ads and posters showing Olivia Colman gazing lovingly at a beaming Anthony Hopkins and lean into the movie's touching story of a daughter trying to take care of her aging father. Everything's going to be OK. Really! Look at that twinkle in Hopkins' eyes. Repeat after me: He's not losing his mind. He's not losing his mind. He's not losing his mind.

You don't need to fix anything here. Six nominations? That's beautiful. We've got a little assignment for you, though. You get up early, right? Get some hot coffee, maybe a doughnut (vegan's OK), go to a quiet room and just sit. And write. It doesn't matter what you write, how you write or what you write about, though it'd be nice if maybe you'd reflect on "Sound of Metal" and how it conveyed a few things we all went through and learned during this past year. And then remember those thoughts when you fill out your ballot.
