Sharon Randall’s newspaper column is a form of friendship — a weekly conversation on things like growing up in the Blue Ridge Mountains, her blind brother Joe, the five grandchildren, backyard quail, thunderstorms and fried-egg sandwiches.
“I write about life and whatever comes along,” said Randall, 68, in an interview from her Las Vegas home. “You stay alive and pay attention, and things keep coming along.”
The Women’s Fund of the Shasta Regional Community Foundation is bringing the popular columnist to Redding in September to benefit its endowment fund. “An Evening with Sharon Randall” begins at 7 p.m. Sept. 22 at David Marr Auditorium (tickets $20 may be purchased here). A $150-per-person catered dinner at The McConnell Foundation is planned for 6 p.m. Sept. 21.
“I’m truly looking forward to it. I promise you we will have a good time,” says Randall. She’s pleased to be part of The Women’s Fund effort to help women and families.
Randall’s self-syndicated column is published in 36 newspapers throughout the country. It’s posted on Redding.com 6 p.m. Saturdays and runs in the Record Searchlight on Sundays. Continue reading “Join The Women’s Fund for ‘An Evening with Sharon Randall’”
