#GivingTuesday Fun Week!!!! 

#GivingTuesday is a global charity event that follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The phenomenon arose after folks thought of their favorite charities during the "giving season." Black Friday and Cyber Monday saves all of us $$ shopping, so why not give back a little of what you saved to a charity this year? We want to be that charity, so we've decided to make the week a fun week of prizes and giving!!


#GivingTuesday, Open House, December 3 - stop by and enjoy hot cider and sweets when you drop off a donation.

Wacky Wednesday, December 4 - final day to enter the "Seeing Red" exhibit. If your art is the wackiest entry, you win a prize!

Thoughtful Thursday, December 5 - bring us a donation that day and for each one we receive, we will donate a coat to the Fannin Crisis Center for their annual coat drive! You've helped TWO LOCAL CHARITIES WITH YOUR DONATION!!

Christmas Ornament Painting Party, Thursday eve, December 5, 6:30-8:30 - Supplies provided for 3 ornaments, byob & a dish, $25.

Fabulous Friday, December 6 - Bring in/donate an ornament you hand made or decorated and if yours is judged the most fabulous, you win a prize!!
