2nd Annual Crafting for a Cause

What: 2nd Annual Crafting for a Cause, hosted by Charles Boyk Law Offices

Who: Local Artists, Crafters, Bakers, and Gift Vendors

When: Friday, November 7th, 9am-6pm

Where: The lobby of PNC Bank Building, located at 405 Madison Avenue in downtown Toledo

What: The lobby will be transformed into a bazaar of more than 30 local vendors from all over northwest Ohio, including those selling original photographs, handbags and accessories, cosmetics, and all types of arts and crafts. The items will be available for sale to the public in time for the Holidays and is the perfect place to buy that special gift for that special someone!

There will also be raffles for Soto Salon gift cards and an iPad Mini!

Why: To support the Sparrow’s Nest, a Cherry Street Mission Ministries facility that provides emergency housing for at-risk women. Every dollar from booth rental fee and prize raffle proceeds will go directly to the Sparrow’s Nest, and Crafting for a Cause.

PHOTO BOOTH BONUS: Boyk Law Offices will also be introducing their Charity Photo Booth! For a suggested donation of $2.00, people are invited to have their picture taken in our professional photo booth and go home with a strip of four poses. All donations will go directly to the Sparrow's Nest.
