Shop. Connect. Enrich.

Join us for our newest fundraiser which is an exclusive shopping event on Thursday, October 23 from 4-7:30 pm. This will be an opportunity to experience many of the fabulous products normally available only through in–home parties. Only representatives of national companies are being invited to participate. This is a great opportunity to do some early Christmas shopping without the pressure you may feel when invited to a home party. There will also be a silent auction with items donated by the vendors. And there will be a drawing for a Sunday Brunch for 4 at the Water Street Inn. This is a free event and RSVPs are not required.
