Magical Christmas Shopping Bazaar to raise money for local school
Thursday 1 November, 2012
St Peter's Lutheran College is set to be transformed into a magical bazaar on Thursday 22 November, for an evening of Christmas shopping and champagne at the annual community Christmas Shopping Bazaar.
More than 300 guests are expected to take part in the community fundraising event, which is projected to raise more than $3,000 for the St Peter's Lutheran P&F Association.
Brookwater resident and event coordinator Mrs Elaine Batiste said the Christmas Bazaar was a chance to showcase local businesses while bringing together the community for an evening of Christmas shopping and champagne.
“The Christmas Shopping Bazaar is a great opportunity for the whole community to get together to enjoy an evening of Christmas shopping, a glass of champagne and, of course, raise money for St Peter's,” Mrs Batiste said.
“We have more than 30 beautiful store-holders registered to take part in this year’s event, which is more than double the size of last year,” she said.
“We’re so grateful Brookwater has come on board to sponsor us again this year – the event simply wouldn’t be possible without their support.”
The Christmas Bazaar will feature 30 stalls selling an array of good from gourmet produce, children’s wear, designer homewares, gifts and accessories. Tickets are $10, and include a glass of champagne on arrival and an entry into the lucky door-prize.
Mrs Batiste, who has organised a number of similar charity events in both Queensland and Victoria, is confident the Christmas Shopping Bazaar will become an annual event.
“The support from the Greater Springfield community has been overwhelming,” Mrs Batiste said.
“We’re hoping the upcoming Christmas Shopping Bazaar will be so successful it will almost certainly become an annual fundraising event,” she said.
The Christmas Shopping Bazaar is on Thursday 22 November, 7 – 9:30pm, at St Peters’ Lutheran College. St Peters’ Lutheran College is located on the corner of Wellness Way and Parkland Drive in Springfield Central.
Tickets are $10 each, with all proceeds donated to the St Peter's Lutheran P&F Association. For ticket sales and enquiries, please phone Mrs Elaine Batiste on 0400 319 245.
