[Event Recap] The Gathering
On November 15th we hosted our annual Gathering Home Tour and Craft Show at our Aspen Model in Venango Trails. This year’s event featured an awesome blend of vendors from clothing boutiques to home made candles to all sorts of artisan crafts. The Gathering is not only an awesome opportunity to find unique and special gifts for the holidays, but this year it was a great chance for all of us to give back! This year our goal was to fund raise through The Gathering for Team Tessa. Team Tessa is the team of family, friends and community members supporting and raising money to cover the medical expenses of Tessa, a local 8 year old girl who is battling a rare pediatric brain tumor. At this year’s event, we had 2 fundraising elements: the event proceeds itself, which came from 10% of each vendors’ sales as well as optional beverage donations, and 100% of proceeds from our Phil Kessel jersey raffle. Through those two fundraising avenues, we were able to raise over $3000 for Team Tessa–an incredible success considering the night of the event turned out to be very snowy!! We are so thankful to all of our generous vendors and our shoppers who braved the storm to help a greater cause. We can’t wait to see what will be accomplished at The Gathering next year!
