To raise money for breast cancer awareness, Lumpkin’s Last Resort near Mocksville is sponsoring a Tie a Ribbon event.

Stop by and show support by tying a ribbon on the pasture fence. The goal is to tie at least 1,000 pink ribbons in October to honor someone who is or has fought the battle. Each ribbon will represent $1 donated to the cause. Ribbon donations are for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

The pasture has been converted into a playground that includes pony rides, games and a 3-hole disc golf course. Discs will be available for a donation to the Throw Pink Foundation.

The farm will have a pumpkin patch, Pink Flea Market, vote on your favorite pet in the stable, or ride the  Pink Ribbon Train. Enjoy snacks, pink lemonade, fun and fellowship for a good cause.

The event is Saturday from 1-3 p.m. (or until volunteers and pets get tired) at  Lumpkin’s Last Resort, 335 Dalton Road (half mile from Country Corners off US 64 E.).
