The event will benefit Girls on the Run of Northern N.C., a non-profit program for girls in grades 3-8 that combines running with lessons designed to foster independent thinking, problem solving and healthy decisions.

For the second year in a row, the event is sponsored by Michele Burgess of Stella & Dot, an accessories company that sells jewelry, handbags and scarves.

Raffle tickets will be available for purchase.

Raffle prizes will be awarded between 11 a.m. and noon.

Lunch will be served at noon.

Vance County native Mary Lloyd Hodges Barbera, of the U.S. Tennis Association N.C., will speak.
