May 31 – Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2019 SCARS Spring Craft Fair on May 26 at the Westmount Junior High School. We raised almost $11,400 for SCARS with this indoor/outdoor market that featured 65 local, small businesses with handmade products/items.
This money is greatly needed given our recent efforts to save as many animals as possible who were left behind due to the wild fires in the northern part of our province!
In addition to the vendors, we had excellent food from JPeats Kitchen, loads of prize raffles, a 50/50 raffle, face painting (thanks to the talented Dream Brushes), and perfect music from The Gentle Yeti. Congrats to our 50/50 draw winner, Terri, who won $664.50!
We also had great success with our Meet & Greet with some of SCARS’ rescued animals who were looking for their forever homes.
A special thank you our event sponsor, Carmen Tocheniuk of Karmalife, and to event organizer, Jill St. Laurent.
Thank you as well to Jess of Happy Hounds Photography for taking beautiful spring photographs for families and their pets.
Mark your calendar for our Christmas Craft Fair on November 17. The event has become so popular that we are moving to the large hanger of the Alberta Aviation Museum on Kingsway. Our 80 vendor spots are already SOLD OUT.
