Fundraiser at Palm Coast Arts Foundation Creative Bazaar

Calling all Crafters and Bakers.

Our last Craft Fair was such a big success, we are going to do it again on Saturday, May 1.  AAUW Flagler will have a booth set up at Palm Coast Arts Foundation Creative Bazaar at Town Center.  The purpose of the booth is to raise funds for AAUW Flagler Branch and Scholarships.  We are asking our members, and friends if they would like to donate some of their crafty and yummy creations for this worthwhile cause.

Last year we had microwave fabric bowls, painted wine glasses and bottles, cute pot people, jewelry, and much more.  Plus, lots of baked goods.   We are also looking for someone to make doggie treats.  Last year there were a lot of people that brought their dogs with them to the bazaar.

Setup begins at 8am, and The Creative Bazaar opens at 9 am to the public and ends at 2pm.  We will need a few volunteers to help man the booth in shifts.   Per PCAF guidelines: Items must be appropriate for a family-friendly audience.  No alcohol, drugs or firearms are permitted.  Vendors can arrive as early as they like to setup and must be cleaned up and off site by 3:30pm.

Volunteers Needed:

  • Booth Attendants for 2 shifts.  Need at least 2-3 people per shift to help setup, sell, cashier, and cleanup.
  • AM shift – 8:00 -11:30 pm
  • PM shift – 11:30 – 3:00 pm
  • Volunteers to help pickup and tag items

Donations will be needed by Wednesday, April 28, so we can tag the items, and ready them for sale.  Baked goods should be picked up/delivered the night before the Bazaar for freshness or delivered the morning of at the booth.   Because of covid all baked goods need to be individually wrapped.

If you are interested in volunteering and/or donating, please send an email with what you are volunteering for and what you will be donating.  Another member or I will be happy to come by and pick up your donation.

Please contact Patti or Marty at:  aauwflagler1984@gmail.com

Thank you for supporting AAUW Flagler and the young girls and women in our county.  We cannot do this without your help.
