2018 Christmas Bazaar Everything You Need To Know

By Susan Van Allen

While we’re enjoying the beginning of fall, the Redeemer community is thick in the planning of our annual Christmas Bazaar Weekend (November 17th and 18th) 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 Philadelphia Country Club (PCC) on the 16th of November. We are excited to return to PCC and are working with the club to create a new and exciting menu for 2018! Additionally we are starting to put together the Outreach Dinner Silent and Live Auctions. If you have an item or service that you would like to donate, please contact Susan Van Allen.

Saturday’s Christmas Bazaar will be held for the last time (before renovation) in the Parish House on the 17th of November. We will be celebrating the long term success of the Bazaar and invite everyone to come take part in all of our traditional events including Attic Treasures, Books, Toys, Children’s Activities, Vintage, Silent Auction, Christmas Shop, and Crafts. Look to future articles for details!
