‘Shop to Give New Fairfield’ Fundraiser at Company A Firehouse, Nov. 19th
The Community Service Club of New Fairfield is happy to announce, “Shop to Give New Fairfield.” Our event has taken a giant leap forward. This year we have added many new components to our, already brilliant, annual event. Shop to Give New Fairfield will take place at Company A Firehouse, 302 Ball Pond Road, New Fairfield, CT, November 19, 2017, from 10:00AM – 3:00PM.
With a new year and new host, “Shop to Give New Fairfield” will also make some changes. The event has been revamped to include live local musicians and food by Weenie Lynn’s. Lowe’s will sponsor a Kids Corner, which will include face painting, “Let’s Build”, and a special performance by musicians Abby and Vince of Abby and the Roadsters. In addition, Amber Alert will be running the Amber Alert Child ID Registration Program. This years event will include an auction of a Giving Tree, in honor of Live For TJ / The TJ Lobraico Foundation. There will be many raffles and auctions throughout the event.
“Shop to Give New Fairfield”, was founded three years ago by Tammy Lee Dunn, a New Fairfield resident. Dunn would curate this event with the vision of giving. The event brings together many non profits, many vendors and shoppers. The vendors pay a nominal fee for a spot, and when the folks shop the vendor will donate 10% of the sale to the nonprofit of the customer’s choice.
This year’s event will create many community service hours for our high school students, any student interested should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information and forms can be found on the events website. Anyone interested in getting involved as a sponsor, non profit, vendor, join our Community Service club, or volunteer should contact us through the event website: www.shoptogivenewfairfield
