The Center is still looking for contestants for the womanless beauty pageant. All of the proceeds go toward preventative cancer treatments and local needs in the community.

The Marion Moose Family Center is holding their first ever community health fair on Saturday from 1-5 p.m.

The event is sponsored by Blue Ridge Health Care, and will feature over 25 vendors and health agencies giving health screenings such as blood pressure and bone density. There will be a table on healthy eating with fresh produce available from P&R Produce.

Starting at 6 p.m., the Center will prepare and serve a free meal for cancer survivors and their immediate family members. The dinner includes Boston butt and chicken with tons of sides.

At 8 p.m., a womanless beauty pageant will be held, and door prizes will be given out featuring gifts from local restaurants and businesses. All proceeds from Saturday’s event will go toward preventative cancer treatment and needs in the community.

“We hope it is a great success so we can do it every year,” said event organizer Priscilla Reel.
