The Chilliwack Opportunity Society is planning their annual Christmas fundraising event, and is putting the call out to the community to support them.
The society is holding a two-day Christmas Market, Dec. 1 and 2, at their clubhouse on 10135 Williams Road, just north of the Gwynne Vaughan Park on Fairfield Island. There will be more than 35 vendors selling a wide range of items that would be perfect gifts for under the tree. The market is also a chance to pick up freshly made stroopwaffles, and preorders are being taken now. Packages of 10 sell for $10. All proceeds will be going to the society.
It runs 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
Earlier in the day on Dec. 1, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., they will also be holding a poinsettia and bake sale. Poinsettias will range according to size from $7 to $30, with a variety of red, pink, white and tri-coloured flowers available, as well as various planters.
There is no admission for the two-day event, and for more information phone the Society at 604-795-9260 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Chilliwack Opportunity Society has been providing a client-driven, community inclusion program for individuals with developmental disabilities since its formation in 1970.
