LASSO to host Bling Fling fund-raiser

LASSO’s Bling Fling brings women together to shop in the comforts of an English Manor.

Winslow on the Shire is the location — 3 1/2 miles south of Pagosa Springs on U.S. 84 — and 15 vendors sharing fashion, bling and beauty will be on hand from 4 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 20.

LASSO, Large Animal Southwest Support Organization, thought that women of the community could use a night out to shop and view what’s new in fashion and beauty. The party atmosphere allows for a come-and-go venue with gourmet appetizers, wine and margaritas. Tours of Winslow on the Shire will be available as well.

A fashion show will be provided by Goodman’s and The Outfitter. Other stores represented that evening include Home Again, Southern Hemisphere and Bull Chic. Consultants from Arbonne International, Silpada and Cookie Lee will participate. Designs by Treeva Wheeless jewelry, facials and massage by Tiffany Perkins, Pagosa Candy Company, Wild Woolies, Mary Kurt-Mason’s Special Talents class and Boothill Gift Shop will have items or services for sale.

This event supports the ongoing care of horses or other large animals that are no longer able to be cared for by their owners or that have no place left to go. These animals have been given another chance to survive in a safe and caring environment and at the same time have given back to students and athletes involved in Special Olympics Horseback riding camp or Mary Kurt-Mason’s Special Talents class. Equine Therapy is amazing for both animal and man.
