FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 28, 20016
Raleigh, NC – On Saturday, November 12th, 9:00 am – 4:30 pm, Wakefield High School PTSA will host its 16th annual Mistletoe Market Holiday Fair and fundraiser at Wakefield High, 2200 Wakefield Pines Drive, in North Raleigh. All proceeds benefit PTSA student programs, and canned good donations go to the Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry in Wake Forest.
More than 190 vendors will showcase their talents as crafters and artisans offering handmade arts & crafts; gifts; jewelry; fresh cut wreaths; garland and Christmas trees from Western NC; a bake sale; basket raffle; and food court. This community event is highly anticipated and frequented by many of the same shoppers year after year.
The products sold can range from subway signs and metal fire pits to jewelry and monograms – a little something for everyone. Vendor spaces all sold out within days of becoming available.
“Our 2015 event expanded to include 17 outdoor vendor booths offering everything from reclaimed wood art sculptures and furnishings, to original prints and paintings displayed by the artist, to mosaic sculptures for home and garden,” said Mistletoe Market chair Lynn Stuchel.
Event admission is $5. Shoppers can receive $1 off with the donation of a canned/non-perishable food item (such as peanut butter; jelly; canned fruit, beans, vegetables; juice; or microwavable pull-top items – no glass please), and children under 12 are free. There will be an ATM available onsite for convenience.
“It’s a unique shopping experience, and a great way to find ‘one of a kind’ gifts,” said shopper Christine Weinerman. “As a parent, I’m also pleased that the monies are going into programs helping the students and our school.”
The event partners with the Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry in Wake Forest, a non-profit organization benefiting local communities for over 30 years, which encourages donations of canned food items on shopping day. Each year over 1000 pounds of food is collected for needy families.
Mistletoe Market is open to the public and profits go directly into the programs of the PTSA like student scholarships, staff luncheons for 200+, departmental grants, Lamp of Knowledge academic awards, PRIDE and AIM student awards, faculty and staff appreciation week, and parent programs. This is the only fundraiser the school holds each year.
