Anita Du Pratt’s a winner!

The winner of the InConcert Sierra season ticket drawing from the Nevada City Farmers Market in September was Anita Du Pratt of Grass Valley.

This is the second year InConcert Sierra has offered a fun raffle at the farmers market in downtown Nevada City.

“We always have fun meeting new people, telling them all about InConcert Sierra if they don’t know about us, and reminding them if they do. There is so much to explore and enjoy in this community, I love being part of it making it even more special”, InConcert Sierra Board President Keith Porter says.

InConcert Sierra’s Third-Sunday Series starts on Oct. 17, and is directed by Julie Hardin.

The therapeutic riding program in southern Nevada County has teamed up with the Marysville Casino for a charity poker tournament featuring Texas hold’em.

It starts at 6 p.m. today.

The $60 buy-in includes dinner; 70 percent goes to the prize pool and 30 percent to Saddle Pals. Organizers estimate the first-place winner will pocket $1,000.

Call J.D. Salyer for info at (530) 432-2422 or (530) 575-0341 for details. The Marysville Casino is at 515 4th St.

Looking for nice clothes at no cost? Want to help women in the community at the same time?

Donate gently used women’s clothing from 5 to 7 p.m. today and pick out free clothing from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday.

Both drop-off and “shopping” will be at Twin Cities Church, 11726 Rough and Ready Highway in Grass Valley.

Any remaining clothing will go to local agencies to assist women of Nevada County. You do not have to donate clothing to shop.

Sister’s Closet is hosted by Twin Cities Church Women’s Ministry. For information, call (530) 306-3970 or visit
