Important news :2021 BAZAAR

The Board has cancel our Annual February Charity Bazaar due to safety reasons related to COVID. We did not feel we could hold this large event and keep our members and visitors safe in such a crowded environment. However, as most of you know this event raises most of the money we give to our charities each year and they now more than ever are in need due to the virus. The Board has decided with the approval of the Town to have a two-month fund raising campaign with the Seasiders and Town residents. Donors are able to donate directly  to the Seasiders, who will donate to our charities.    Our fund raising campaign  IS called “Seasiders Share by the Seashore”

PLEASE CONTACT PRESIDENT CHRIS MIELKE @  574.298.6503

FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO DONATE.

Please continue to be generous in your support of donations to our wine, raffle and card sales at our Luncheons as they all support our charities as well.
Happy New Year to all as we go into 2021. 

PLEASE CONTACT PRESIDENT CHRIS MIELKE 574.298.6503 TO DONATE OR FOR FURTHER INFORMATION.  

Even though the Bazaar for 2021 is cancelled the Valentines Flower sale will provide funds for our Charity work this year.  It is hoped that our Donation Drive will be successful so that we can continue our charity work this year.

                        SEASIDERS 2020 BAZAAR

Once again our  2020 annual Bazaar was a huge success !  It is always amazing what treasures are found in every department.  All monies raised at our annual Bazaar are donated to local charities.  

**********************************************************

  One of the charities that receive our financial assistance is Ryan’s Case for Smiles.  Marilyn and many willing volunteers cut material, sew pillowcases and distribute them  to Children’s Hospital wards in Palm Beach County and beyond.   These small patients are extremely excited to see them on their beds when they arrive and they are theirs to keep. Last year over 7000 cases were distributed ! No small feat for a dedicated group of sewers & ironers!

                                                ++++++++++++++++++++++++

Sally was the very happy winner of the Picnic in a Basket Raffle !  Congratulations Sally, enjoy.

Kudos to Marilyn and Dot for their great selling job! No one got passed them  whether to chat or to purchase a ticket.

The 2017 Seasiders Bazaar, held on February 10 and 11 at the Palm Beach Shores Community Center, was a big success !

The Seasiders also appreciate the local business that supported the Bazaar  the SeaSpray Hotel and Restaurant,  Sailfish Marina, Cannonsport Marina,  Publix and the Singer Island Rotary.   It was truly a community effort !

The 2017 Bazaar raised $12,500.00  and the proceeds go to local charities:   American Legion Riders Homeless Veteran Program,  JAY Ministries,  Lake Park Elementary School ,  Little Smiles,  New Adult Day Care,  Ryan’s Case for Smiles,  St. George’s Meals Program,  St. George’s Summer Program and the Seasiders Scholarship of the Rotary Scholarship Fund.

2015 BAZAAR Report

Our 2015 Seasider Bazaar was held on Feb 13 and 14th at the Palm Beach Shores Community Center.
It was a great success in various ways.
It allowed local residence to clean their cupboards, closets and garages and know that their trash would be converted into some else’s treasures and that their donations would be going to a worthy cause.
It allowed local businesses to support us by sponsoring us with donated goods, food or gift certificates for our raffles.
It allowed the community to come together and volunteer their time and talents. This included Seasiders, friends and family along with the PBS Police, Volunteer Firefighters and Town Staff totaling approximately 100 people.
It allowed residence of PBS, visitors to Singer Island and people from further afield to come and experience the excitement of finding treasures and essentials that they did not know they needed. There was a full range of goods in one location. Ranging from plant to floral arrangements, from baked good to a food court, from knick knacks to fine collectibles, from crafts to kitchen gadgets, to electronics, from a 50/50 raffle to a beautiful quilt raffle.
Most importantly it allowed Seasiders to raise $11,700.00 for our local charities. This year the recipients of our funds were:
The Rotary Scholarship program, the Women’s Chamber Scholarship program, Lake Park Elementary School, St. George’s Meals Program, St. George’s After School Program, ConKerr Cancer, American Legion Riders and the PBS Volunteer Firefighters Association.
