The second annual "Carving for the Cure" is taking place at the Piedmont Triad Farmer's Market. The event is sponsored by Outdoor Equipment Distributors Inc. and features thirteen carvers from around the country.

Officials tell WFMY News 2 one of the carvers participating in the event is Randy Everett, who is from Colfax. The carvers create pieces of art from blocks of wood using chainsaws and hand tools.

The money raised from the pieces bought goes to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Last year, officials said the event raised over $5,000 which provided 50 free mammograms for women who may have not been able to afford them otherwise.

There are also local vendors and entertainment for the whole family. Admission is free and the carving will be going on Sunday from 8 a.m. to Noon.
