Fighting Ovarian Cancer

Here's the information from local shop Needle Nook, directly copied from their e-mail:

This beautiful shawl was hand knit and donated by our own Shirley Robb. It will be raffled off on April 18th. Tickets are $5.00 each and are tax deductible if checks are made out to "Ovarian Cycle". So come by and see this beauty and support our fundraising effort. Our customers have always been very supportive of our community service projects and events and for that we thank you very much.

Our second Customer Spotlight Sale and ovarian cancer fundraiser will be held on Saturday, April 18th, from 2PM-6PM. We are looking for craft persons to set up tables outside on our sidewalk and sell their wares to the public. We need folks who make beaded jewelry and wearables, knit, crochet, weaving, quilting, sewing, polymer clay, felting, painting and more. Sorry, we cannot accept yarn or original patterns. After the event the vendors would donate 15% of their sales to the "Ovarian Cycle" event being held on April 25th. Volunteers cycle for 6 hours to raise dollars to fund research for a test for ovarian cancer. Currently, no such test exists. Last year we had wonderful merchandise for sale by 15 vendors and $1,800.00 was raised. We hope to top that this year. So call us to register and reserve a space. Even if you can't participate as a vendor, you can still support the effort by shopping our event. We will have a bake sale and possibly a silent auction if we get enough items. So let us know if you have anything to donate. You can score great gifts for Mother's Day, Father's Day, birthdays and more. Please join us on this important day.
