Residents will be given an opportunity to get a head start on their holiday shopping this weekend while also supporting small business owners.
The Ladies Day Out benefit will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Pritchard Community Center in Elizabethtown.
Casey Farmer, an organizer for the event, said the benefit raises money for the White Mills Christian Church building fund. The event is free to customers although donations are accepted at the door. The vendors were charged a flat fee that goes directly toward the church building fund.
“Our building fund is currently in its fourth year of raising money, and we are a little over half way toward the projected cost of a new church,” Farmer said. “… Every penny counts and helps us get a little closer to our projected need of $1 million for the new church.”
More than 50 vendors will be set up at the benefit. A few well-known companions that will have booths are Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Color Street Nails, Tastefully Simple, and Scentsy. There will also be vendors who make and craft all of their inventory, such as door hangers, wreaths, sugar cookies, quilts, embroidered items, bourbon barrel items, women’s boutique clothing, and much more.
Additionally, White Mills Christian Church will be selling Christmas T-shirts. The profits from those will go to the building fund as well.
Dean Parrish Books also will be there. People can purchase copies of books written by Parrish as well as get their copies signed.
For those who may be hungry during the event, the Wojo & Mojo’s Grilled Cheese and More food truck also will be set up.
Farmer encouraged residents to come out and support “our church building fund all while having fun and supporting our unique and super creative business owners.”
