Holly Berry Market Tomorrow!!!

November 17, 2006

Albany - Want to do a little Christmas shopping while giving to the community?  We've got an idea. Preparation for the 13th Annual Holly Berry Market is taking place. On Saturday, vendors selling arts and crafts, jewelry, handbags and more will be on display.

Last year, about $15,000 was raised at the market. Proceeds go to neighbors in need and retired sisters who used to work at the school.

Principal Linda Johnson says the fundraiser is a wonderful way to give back to the community.  She says, "We really try to focus on Christmas season as an opportunity for our students to give to others because it's all about what we can do to give a gift of love as Christ was given to us."

Also available at the Holly Berry Market is a table for ten to the slice of life dinner featuring celebrity cook Paula Deen. They can be yours if the price is right through a silent auction. The market opens at 9 AM Saturday, admission is $2 per person.
