Craft Show To Benefit Local School Kids

YORKTOWN—The non-profit group Giving Hope in Hampton Roads will sponsor a craft show at Grafton Baptist Church on Saturday, August 21 from 10am to 3pm. The church is located at 5440 George Washington Memorial Highway in Grafton.

No need to worry about rain, heat, or humidity. This will be an indoor event benefiting the teachers at Carver Elementary School in Newport News. Admission to the event is free, but donations of cash and new school supplies will be greatly appreciated. Donations will be used to create baskets for teachers and to financially assist a local cancer patient who is having difficulties with the high costs of treatments.

There will be several vendors available offering unique gift items. Food for sale will be presented by Cosmic Catering and includes a lunch deal special of a BBQ sandwich, coleslaw, baked beans, and a drink (water or soda). Gourmet cupcakes will also be available for purchase, featuring flavors such as French Vanilla, Chocolate with Salted Caramel Buttercream, Strawberry Shortcake, and Oreo.

For additional information or to make a donation if you cannot attend the event, contact Karen Whaley, president and chief executive officer of Giving Hope in Hampton Roads, at 757-817-3495.
