Coming Attraction: Yamashiro Farmers Market Benefit for 'Twinkles'

Yamashiro Farmers Market will be hosting a benefit tomorrow, Aug. 15, to benefit longtime performer Ellen "Twinkles" Meyers.

The entertainer, known for her funny costumes, face painting and silly balloons, suffered a stroke last year that has prevented her from performing. She had been with the farmers market since it started four years ago.

Ian, CC and I visited the farmers market three years ago (can't believe it's been that long!), and CC loved watching Twinkles turn ordinary balloons into colorful creatures.

The special night will include live music performances from actress Minnie Driver, band the Furious Seasons and Twinkles' entertainer friend Zan.

In addition to the yummy food and drink booths, there will be arts and crafts for kids from Art Rebel and a raffle that will include a prize from Luce Spa.

Sounds like fun!
