For those who have binged-watched HGTV for years, waiting for the opportunity to use their decorating skills, the time has come. On April 21, Village Square is hosting a Tablescape Contest to raise money for the Lupus Foundation of American.  Individuals and organizations are invited to showcase their skills with creative tablescape themes at the event which will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 21 in the Grand Ballroom.
“This is the first year we have hosted such an event,” said Bridgeport resident Monica Gorrell, who is helping coordinate the contest.  “We anticipate a wide variety of themes in the table arrangements and look forward to seeing the creativity involved.”
Set up for the event will take place on April 20 between 2:00p.m. and 8:00p.m. at Village Square.  Participants will decorate with the theme of their choice for a $25 fee and attendees will get their choice of a round sixty-inch table or an oblong eight-foot table.  Village Square will table cloths and skirting if needed and the participant is responsible for any other props. 
Entry to the event is $5 and votes are $1 each.  Those attending will be served free snacks and beverages.  The table with the most votes will win two free tickets to Myrtle Beach and other door prizes will be awarded throughout the event.  The Bridgeport High School Jazz Band and Steel Drum Ensemble will provide music throughout the duration of the event. Additional information is available on the Homefinders Plus Facebook page.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Lupus Foundation of America, which is devoted to research on the disease, which has affected family members of the event organizers.
“We have seen first-hand how devastating Lupus can be and we are very appreciative of Village Square for raising awareness and funds for the cause,” said Gorrell.
