Phinney Center still needs volunteers, baked goods donations for this weekend’s Winter Festival & Crafts Fair

December 1st, 2011 · Comments

The Phinney Neighborhood Association’s annual Winter Festival & Crafts Fair is this weekend, and they’re still looking for a few volunteers, as well as people to donate baked goods.

The festival is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and features 115 artists and craftspeople, hundreds of musicians and dancers, a quilt raffle, bake sale and lunch items for sale. It’s a major fundraiser for the PNA’s programs, including the Greenwood Senior Center, the Hot Meal Program, before and after school childcare, tool library and community projects for neighbors in need.

Admission is $4 for adults and $2 for PNA members, plus a can of food for the Greenwood Food Bank (children 12 and under are free).

If you’re interested in volunteering, email alis@phinneycenter.org.

The Phinney Center will have its annual Giving Tree in the lobby. Gift requests come from children and adults served by Dorothy Day House, FamilyWorks Food Bank, Broadview Emergency Shelter, Childhaven Therapeutic Childcare Program, Greenwood Food Bank, and Whitman Middle School.

(Disclosure: PhinneyWood is a sponsor of the Winter Festival.)
