Barnes & Noble Hosts Book-tober Fair to Benefit Washoe CASA Foundation

Event Dates and Times

10/18/2017 - 11/1/2017
Reno
The Washoe CASA Foundation will hold its inaugural Book-tober Fair at Barnes & Noble in Reno, Nev. to raise funds benefiting foster care children in Washoe County.

From October 18-November 1, 2017, Barnes & Noble will contribute a percentage of sales to the Washoe CASA Foundation. Sales include books, merchandise, and Starbucks coffee, cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory and other food items from the Barnes & Noble Cafe. All shoppers need to do is mention CASA at checkout.

People can also support the Washoe CASA Foundation by shopping online at www.bn.com/bookfairs from October 18-November 6, 2017 and include the Book-tober Fair voucher ID #12200952 on the payment page during checkout.

The Barnes & Noble Book-tober Fair will help the Washoe CASA Foundation underwrite expenses for the benefit of foster care children in Washoe County. There are currently more than 900 children in foster care in Washoe County and approximately 100 CASA volunteers. CASAs are Court Appointed Special Advocates for the Second Judicial District Court’s CASA Program.

After training, CASA volunteers are empowered directly by the courts to offer judges critical information they need to ensure that a child’s rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care. CASA volunteers add great value to the team of professionals working on behalf of these children and are among the most informed people in our community about the needs of abused and neglected children. These children are better served by the juvenile court when CASA volunteers are available to speak on a child’s behalf.

The Book-tober Fair will showcase a series of family-friendly events including seven collectable buttons, storytime, a variety of arts & crafts and Halloween costume parades and contests. A full schedule is here:

The Real Inspector Hound

Event Dates and Times

10/6/2017 - 10/28/2017
Bruka Theatre 99 N. Virginia, Reno, NV 89501
Reno, NV. Tom Stoppard’s The Real Inspector Hound opens the 25th anniversary season at Brüka Theatre on October 6, 2017. Feuding theatre critics Moon and Birdboot, the first a fusty philanderer and the second a pompous and vindictive second stringer, are swept into the whodunit they are viewing. In the hilarious spoof of Agatha Christie-like melodramas that follows, as mists rise about isolated Muldoon Manor, Moon and Birdboot become dangerously implicated in the lethal activities of an escaped madman.

The Real Inspector Hound is a madcap murder mystery farce directed by John Blomberg. Blomberg, who directed last year’s Happy Birthday Wanda June, has worked with many theatre companies in the region as an actor, director and theatre maker.

The Real Inspector Hound opens at Brüka with a post-show opening night champagne reception and appetizers from the Wild River Grille on October 6, 2017. The show runs weekly Thursday through Sunday through October 28, 2017. Evening shows begin at 8:00 pm (Artist night is Wednesday October 25, 2017 – all tickets on this night only are $10.) There is one Sunday matinee on October 15th at 2:00 PM followed by a talk back with the company and our audience. The doors open a half an hour before curtain time. The play is suggested for ages 8 and up.

Nevada Day Classic

Event Dates and Times

10/28/2017
Carson Nugget, 507 N Carson St, Carson City, NV 89701
Registration is now open for the Nevada Day Classic, an 8K run and 2 mile run/walk that brings together hundreds of runners and walkers just prior to the Nevada Day Parade in historic Carson City. The Classic, hosted by Tahoe Mountain Milers, benefits Guide Dogs for the Blind. Local guide dog puppies-in-training and their raisers from the group Eyes for Tomorrow will serve as course marshals to guide runners and walkers through the west side of Nevada’s capital city.

At last year’s Classic, a lucky puppy raiser was presented with a very special puppy named Nevada. Over the past year, Nevada has been raised in Carson City, and this year’s participants will have the opportunity to wish Nevada luck as he prepares to return for his formal training.

Community members are encouraged to register for the Nevada Day Classic at www.nevadadayclassic.org. Families and groups are welcome, costumes are encouraged, and breakfast will be served. The race festivities will feature a costume contest, a raffle, and a meet-and-greet with local guide dog puppies-in-training.
