Ella Enchanted the Musical @ Gunter Theatre
Sep 7 @ 1:30 pm – Sep 23 @ 1:15 pm

*See website for specific dates and showtimes*

Ella cannot say no. As a baby, she received a magical ‘gift’ from her fairy godmother that forces her to obey everyone – all the time. This gift, which Ella keeps secret from those around her, ultimately becomes a dangerous vulnerability.

As she grows, Ella tires of the inability to follow her own will and sets out on a quest to rid herself of this ‘gift’. Along the way, her bravery, intelligence and selflessness helps her realize that she alone has the power to set herself free.

This story of strength and perseverance in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles is a fun, warm and empowering journey that will encourage children of all ages to find – and use – their voice.

Kathryn Smith is a journalist, writer and American history speaker who is fascinated by women who were ahead of their time. Her interest in Gertrude Legendre was aroused when a friend told her about the multi-talented, multi-tasking mistress of Medway Plantation. “When she got to the part about Gertie escaping the Nazis over the Swiss border, I said, ‘Wait, wait, one woman did all this?” As part of her research, Kathryn personally traced Gertie’s POW experience, from the Ritz Hotel bar in Paris where she met a friend who agreed to drive her to the front, to her escape by train from Konstanz, Germany. Her research also took her to Aiken, where Gertie was born, New York, where she lived in a mansion off Central Park, and, finally, to Medway itself.

A team of journalists coach tellers through their eight to 10 minute story and help them rehearse before the event. Their stories inspire us, connect us, make us laugh — and, often, they explore life’s more complicated truths.

Susan G. Komen SC Mountains to Midlands Race for the Cure 2019 @ Fluor Field at the West End
Sep 28 @ 6:00 am – 10:00 am

Join us on Saturday, September 28th at Fluor Field at the West End for the 2019 SC Mountains to Midlands Race for the Cure!

This important annual event raises significant funds for the breast cancer movement, thanks to supporters and survivors around the world who step up and take action by fundraising for the cause.

Our event truly makes an impact. The majority of the net income raised by this event stays in our community to help fund local programs offering breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment. The remaining funds go toward the Susan G. Komen® Research and Training Grants program.

In addition to raising funds for the breast cancer movement, our event also tells the story of our impact, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those we have lost to this disease.

Every year, in cities around the globe, our allies join with us and prove they are More Than Pink®.

These passionate supporters and survivors are not content to simply say they support the breast cancer cause or wear a pink ribbon. They turn their support into action. They recognize the need to raise funds for the fight against breast cancer, and they get to work.

Get Into Gaffney by Getting Into the Gaffney Station Farmers Market! If you’re a farmer, join us as a vendor. If you’re a citizen or visitor, this is a great way to truly shop locally.

Greenville Downtown Saturday Market @ Main Street at McBee Avenue
Sep 28 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

On Saturday mornings from the beginning of May until the end of October, two blocks of downtown Greenville’s Main Street are transformed into a bustling farmers’ market. The market features over 75 vendors selling the season’s freshest produce and the area’s most original and high quality crafts.  Each week thousands of people flock to the TD Saturday Market for locally-sourced products where all food must be grown or produced within 100 miles of Greenville and crafters are highly-encouraged to use locally-sourced supplies.

When the market launched in 2003, downtown Greenville was just beginning to flourish. The market was located on a small side street and was comprised of roughly 20 vendors. Attendance was low during the market’s infancy, however, as word spread and Main Street’s popularity as a destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment grew, so did the market’s attendance.  In 2007, the market relocated to Main Street. Now, about to enter its 17th season in May, the market offers exciting programming, including live music, children’s activities and chef’s demonstrations sponsored by partnerships with local organizations.

There is something undeniably special about Greenville’s TD Saturday Market. We invite you to join us Saturday mornings to experience it for yourself!

A Reading with Jon Sealy @ Hub City Bookshop
Oct 3 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Hub City Bookshop is thrilled to host author Jon Sealy “a significant new voice in Southern fiction” on October 3rd at 6PM!

His latest novel, The Edge of America, is set in 1984 Miami. Enter the high-stakes world of South Florida’s drug culture, where a businessman with CIA ties is about to risk it all.

Bobby West is on the edge. As chief financial officer for a Miami holding company and a CIA front, he has overleveraged his business in the go-go 1980s financial culture. He turns to a deal-with-the-devil money laundering operation with a local gangster, Alexander French—a deal which quickly goes south when $3 million goes missing. With echoes of Iran-Contra and the Orwellian surveillance state, The Edge of America is a stunning thriller about greed, power, and the limits of the American dream.

Jon Sealy is also the author of The Whiskey Baron (Hub City Press, 2014). His fiction has appeared widely in literary journals and magazines. He currently lives in Richmond, Virginia.
