At 6 p.m. Oct. 10, the third annual Wiggin’ Out dinner and fundraiser will be held at Squire Creek. I never knew what Wiggin’ Out was until I met with Vicki Caskey, founder of Wiggin’ Out, last week.
This year’s event will have Tabby Soignier, 28, and Henry Futch, 14, cancer survivors, speaking. There will be a silent auction; musical entertainment, food and the signature drink called “The Pink Wig.” A lot of fun will be had, but the goal is simple — raise money to help those in need.

I have been helping out at the restaurant since I was 12. My grandmother would let me bus tables to keep me busy, I guess. I started waiting tables at 15.”
