Fundraiser success and gratitude - Holiday Spectacular Shoppe

December 04, 2017

Thanks so much to our very kind community for supporting this recent fundraising event!

Why are fundraisers important? Any non-profit will tell you that you need funds to carry out your mission. As a non-profit 501 (c)3 organization, Crossroads Center for Children is tasked with the challenge of raising much of the money for our budget. This means that in order to carry out our important work of helping prepare children for successful lives, we conduct fundraising events throughout the year. Learn more about fundraising and donating at Crossroads Center for Children.

The Holiday Spectacular Shoppe was a wonderful idea for a fundraiser conceived by Gail Lovelady. We owe her many thanks for the success of this most recent event!

Monumental thanks to Gail Lovelady, who coordinated the Holiday Spectacular Shoppe on Saturday, 12/2/17 from 11-3 to benefit Crossroads Center for Children. Gail, an alumni parent of the school’s, loves giving back to others and is very involved in making a difference. We are so very grateful for her help. Many thanks, too, to Jenn Iovinelli, who helped Gail get this event together!
