The Best Salon and Spa is running a series of fundraisers in October to mark Breast Cancer Awareness month. A bake sale will run Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The salon is also offering pink hair extensions for $10. Proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society.
The Buffalo Grove farmers market will wrap up Sunday. Stop by the Spray N’ Play parking lot to stock up on produce and other favorites from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Don’t forget to bring a non-perishable item or two to support local food pantries.
Have you encountered any zombies lately? There’s reportedly been an invasion of the undead in Crystal Lake. They will make appearances Saturday at Home of the Sparrow’s 5K run/1-mile walk.
Those who survive the zombie encounter can take another run Sunday in Kildeer, where a 5?/8K combined with an Oktoberfest celebration will benefit Countryside Association for People with Disabilities.
