Red Ribbon Fall Bazaar set
The Red Ribbon Committee is currently making plans for its annual Fall Bazaar set for November 10 at the Patterson Civic Center.
Patrons can expect to choose from a variety of items to purchase. Since the date is close to Christmas, organizers say this will be a good time to begin planning for the holiday season.
This unique fundraiser with space for approximately 50 vendors is sponsored by the parish Red Ribbon Committee. Booth space is currently on sale now for school clubs, churches, civic organizations, as well as individuals who want to raise money for their cause. A booth consists of three eight-foot long tables in a U-shape. The cost of a booth is $40.
Vendors may sell homemade items, garage sale items (with the exception of clothing), arts and crafts, antiques, baked goods and more. Vendors pay for booth space and then keep all of their proceeds. Since the event is held indoors, weather is not a problem. Booth space will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. For information and/or a registration form, call Diane Wiltz at 337-836-9661.
There will be a $2 admission at the door for all adults, children under 10 will not be charged. Concessions of hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and drinks will be sold by the Red Ribbon Committee. Proceeds from the event will help fund the annual drug-free prevention week of October 19 – 28. Organizers of the event believe that this is a “win-win” event for both the Committee and groups who participate.
