Local not-for-profit organizations and charities are invited to apply for the 7th annual Alternative Gift Fair, hosted by JCI Vernon.

The fair will be held on Saturday, November 26th, 2016, from noon until 5 pm at the Schubert Centre, 3505 30th Avenue (next to the downtown Safeway).

The fair will offer holiday shoppers an easy way to buy gifts of charitable donations and to support their favorite causes. Each participating organization offers a variety of meaningful “gifts of help” in price ranges that start as low as $10. Shoppers will receive gift certificates and inserts that identify their donations.

In the past three years, the JCI Vernon Alternative Gift Fair has raised thousands for both local and international organizations. Participating organizations must send a representative to the fair, where they are able to promote their current and upcoming projects.

“The date of the Alternative Gift Fair is the same day as the downtown Christmas Light Up, so on your way to the Light Up, why not stop by the Schubert Center from noon until 5pm and do some holiday gift shopping for a good cause,” said Deryk Ellison, JCI Vernon Alternative Gift Fair co-chair.

Applications are available now. Please contact this year’s JCI Vernon Alternative Gift Fair co-chair Deryk Ellison at jcialternativegiftfair@gmail.com.

Deadline for completed applications is 5pm on Monday, November 14th. This event is proudly sponsored by 105.7 Sun FM.
