Four businesswomen in Shelby have formed a group which seeks to raise money for worthwhile causes in the community. The Shelby Area Business Group was created by Insurance Agent Carolyn Clarke; Julie Britton, owner of The Coolest Shop In Town; Jennifer Arms, whose family owns Glen's Surplus; and Connie Roub, owner of Connie's Place consignment store. The first fund-raiser is Saturday October 5th at the Gazebo in downtown Shelby, as part of the final Farmer's Market of the season. It's a chili cook-off to raise money for The Coolest Shop In Town's effort to help women with breast cancer. The store has a "little back room" where wigs and other items are available free of charge. The chili cook-off includes prizes for the best recipe, face-painting, silent raffles of items donated by Shelby businesses, and a bake sale. The Shelby Area Business Group has about twenty members, and is looking for more.
