Christmas Bazaar and
Outreach Dinner Party
While we’re enjoying the beginning of fall, The Redeemer community is thick in the planning of our annual Christmas Bazaar Weekend (November 21st and 22nd) and we wanted to share some important information with you about these major Outreach Fundraising Events.
Friday’s Christmas Outreach Dinner Party will be held at Merion Cricket Club on the 21st of November. Mark your calendars now for this wonderful event. If you would like to be part of the Dinner Committee, please don’t hesitate to contact Susan Van Allen. Also, we are starting to put together the Silent and Live Auctions. If you have an item or service that you would like to donate for these, please let them know as well.
Saturday’s Christmas Bazaar will be held, as always, at the Parish House on the 22nd of November. In addition to our traditional events (including Attic Treasures, Lunch, Books, Toys, Vintage, Silent Auction, Breakfast/Lunch, Gifts, Candles and Plants), this year we are excited to announce that we will be having an Antique Roadshow type of event and are looking at bringing in an outside vendor or two.
