Save The Date

by Chelsea Gilman, Business Manager

It’s time to save the date for Creative Action’s 2nd annual Big Hair Country Fair, where everything is BIG, not just the hair!  This not-to-be-missed event will take place on Saturday night, March 23, 2013.

Nestled under the old oak trees at the Salt Lick pavilion, attendees will enjoy all you can eat BBQ and a flowing open bar, play wild carnival games, get their hair done by some of Austin’s best coiffeurs, and snap photos in a vintage western photo booth.  They will also be entertained all night long by the musical styles of two great bands.

This is a key fundraising event for Creative Action and we could not have been so successful in previous years without the wonderful support from our community: attending the event, sponsoring the event, and donating fabulous prizes for our auction.  If you are interested in any of these great opportunities, please contact me at chelsea@creativeaction.org

Big Hair Country Fair: BBQ, Fun Hair and Carnival Games

by Mary Alice Carnes, Community Relations Director

Theatre Action Project (TAP) presents the Big Hair Country Fair, Saturday, March 24. The event features hairdos for attendees provided on site by Birds Barbershop stylists. Guests will also enjoy all the Salt Lick BBQ they can eat, refreshments, cake walk, carnival games and a vintage photo booth complete with costumes. Musical entertainment is provided by Western Swing band Hot Club of Cowtown and Oliver Rajamani.

The Big Hair Country Fair takes place from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m. at the Salt Lick Pavilion, 18300 FM 1826, in nearby Driftwood, Texas. Proceeds benefit Theatre Action Project.

Karen LaShelle, Executive Director touts the fun elements of the event. “Who can resist Texas Swing music, BBQ, cake walk, carnival games and big bouffant hair-dos? This is going to be a raucous fun time–all for a really good cause–supporting the development of young people through the arts. All of the proceeds will directly support our school programs, which cost as little as $2 per child per hour.”

Our old-fashioned Cake Walk gives you the chance to win gift cards for cakes, cupcakes and all things delicious from these Austin favorites: Lick It, Bite It, or Both, 1886 Cafe and Bakery, Delish, The Cupcake Bar, Bellissimo Bakery, and Walton’s Fancy and Staple. Yum!

Cake not your taste? Pan for gold at our Fool’s Gold station. We have jewelry you can win from Russell Korman Jewelers, DLC Brooklyn, and Kendra Scott Jewelry.

Any way you look at it, you’re in for a great time at the Big Hair Country Fair.  To buy tickets, visit: TAP Big Hair.

P.S.: Another big hair style I like is that of Diana Ross. I remember pretending to be a Supreme  using a hair brush as a microphone and singing in my own living room girl group. See you at the Big Hair Country Fair!
