C.A.V.E. Bash set for August 15

MARLOW, Okla._The third annual C.A.V.E. Bash, which is a free event to promote anti-bullying, will be held August 15.

C.A.V.E., or Community Against Violent Expressions, promotes anti-bullying awareness and helps local families at Christmas through donated toys. C.A.V.E. Bash collects toys two different ways: vendors donate $25 worth of new toys and car show participants donate $20 worth of toys in lieu of a traditional entry fee.

Ann Sanchez, C.A.V.E. Bash founder, says they were able to help 28 families in 2013 when they first started, and they were able to help 174 families in 2014. Sanchez explained they were able to help so many more in 2014 because of the toy run and larger turnout to the event. She hopes they’ll be able to help even more this year.

This year’s toy run starts at the Shop ‘N Bag at 2 S Old Highway 81. Participants should meet there at 10:00 a.m. on August 15, bikes leave at 10:30 a.m. to Redbud Park in Marlow. All of the collected toys will go to help families at Christmas.

C.A.V.E. Bash is Saturday, August 15, from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. at Redbud Park in Marlow. There will be a car/truck/off-road/motorcycle show, toy run, toy drive, vendors, inflatables, pony rides and live concerts starting at 11:00 a.m. The Allen Biffle Band has been a part of the event since the beginning and will close out the event with a concert.

    A flood of lawsuits over LGBT rights is making its way through courts and that'll continue, no matter what the Supreme Court decides in the case of a baker who wouldn't create a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.
